Before it became a part of the City of Portland in 1893, Sellwood was an independent, incorporated town. Changes in transportation, from riverboats to light rail, have always driven change in architectural styles and density, and Sellwood exemplifies such change. This tour explores a section of the original Sellwood tract where you will see a variety of houses and commercial structures from 1876 to the present. We’ll begin with a walk under the new Sellwood Bridge and finish at the Oaks Pioneer Church, whose move from Milwaukie and subsequent preservation helped lift the neighborhood out of its post-World War II doldrums.
