Portland Heights Walking Tour
December 30, 2017, 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm
The Portland Heights neighborhood towers above southwest Portland providing spectacular views and close proximity to downtown. This area was virtually inaccessible until a cable car was built in 1890 that provided all-weather access to this highly desirable location. In 1906, the electric streetcar provided even more reliable service to Portland Heights and continued on up to Council Crest.
Portland Heights became one of the most desirable neighborhoods in the city, with a mix of spacious and elegant early 20th century homes.
This walking tour covers less than one mile but has some steep ascents and descents. Come prepared for a rather strenuous walk! There is parking available in the neighborhood.
Cost of this narrated tour is $15. 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
