Garthwick Architectural Walking Tour
August 31, 2017, 6:00 pm - 7:45 pm
Garthwick? Where is that?…you might ask. Located just south of Sellwood and north of the Waverly Country Club, this hidden residential neighborhood is a great “outdoor lab” for the most popular residential styles of the early 20th century. Quiet and tree-lined with a meandering street grid, this upper middle-class enclave has a socio-economic homogeneity that contrasts with its architectural variety.
Tudor Revival residences predominate, but there are several early Ranch Style homes and a stunning example of an International Style influenced contemporary dwelling. Join me in an exploration of this often over-looked, off-the-beaten path part of inner SE Portland.
This easy 1 1/2 hour stroll covers less than 1 mile on level urban terrain.
Cost of this narrated tour is $10. You may pay by check, cash or credit card at the start of the tour. You may also use PayPal by following this link: http://bit.ly/22q0waD
