Description

 

IMPORTANT NOTE: UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE, MOUTH AND NOSE FACE COVERINGS ARE REQUIRED TO BE WORN BY ALL WALKING TOUR ATTENDEES OVER THE AGE OF TWO (2).

In recent years, the area bounded by West Burnside, 10th Avenue, and I-405 has been revitalized as a popular shopping, dining, and night spot. In many ways the area once again reflects its early 20th century development with several hotels of varying sizes and a variety of commercial buildings. This tour examines a portion of the West End filled with buildings ranging from First Presbyterian Church to the Sentinel Hotel. Along the way, you’ll learn the fascinating social and architectural significance of the neighborhood, while seeing firsthand, the work of important Portland architects, including William C. Knighton, A. E. Doyle, and several others.

 

Space is limited. Pre-Registration is required.
