Flavor of a Working Class Ethnic Neighborhood
Albina was the terminus of the first trans-continental railroad and an independent city before being incorporated into Portland in 1891. This was historically a neighborhood with a relatively high percentage of African-Americans.
In the mid-20th century this district was an “urban sacrifice” area for the building of Memorial Coliseum and I-5. There are places and spaces remaining in this neighborhood that evoke the late 19th and early 20th century flavor of a working class ethnic neighborhood.
