With the Banfield Freeway to the north, East Burnside to the south, and Sandy Boulevard cutting right through its center, the Kerns neighborhood offers a unique slice of inner east-side Portland. This tour focuses on the variety of development that occurred between two historic street car lines. You’ll see the last standing trolley barn from Portland's first generation or street railways, a wide assortment of single and multi-family housing, plus some surprising and historic examples of industrial and educational buildings.

 

Pre-registration is required.
