Architectural Heritage Center

Exploring the heart of Portland’s late-nineteenth century commercial district, this tour is packed with the names of prominent city pioneers who made their mark as merchants, developers, and architects as well as providing some of the city’s finest examples of cast iron, Richardsonian Romanesque and Classical architecture. You’ll learn about the Willamette River’s first bridge, the first public market, and our first Chinatown as we also discuss how the district was at the forefront of downtown preservation efforts in the 1970s.
