Buckman Neighborhood Walking Tour
July 31, 10:00 am - 12:00 pm
The Buckman neighborhood is the residential center of historic East Portland, an area that developed in the 1870s and 1880s due to its close proximity to the waterfront and railroad yards. Buckman retained its prominence on the East Side into the early years of the 20th century, but experienced a decline in population and elegance by the mid 20th century. After years of stagnation and incompatible infill, this quintessential Portland neighborhood is experiencing a rebirth of residential appeal and commercial growth.
This tour highlights the residences and schools that define the “sense of place” that is Buckman today.
This tour lasts about 2 hours and covers less than 2 miles on easily walkable urban terrain.
There is parking available in the neighborhood.
Cost for this narrated walking tour is $20.
