Downtown Sacred Spaces Tour
Do you love to look at all those churches on the South Park Blocks and in the West End, and wonder what they’re like inside? Well here’s your chance to see some of them. We’ve arranged a walking tour that includes the interiors of five downtown area sacred spaces.
Join us for this rare opportunity as we take you inside First Presbyterian, First Baptist, First Congregational, the Sixth Church of Christ Scientist, and The Old Church. Along the way you’ll see an array of Povey Brothers stained glass and learn about the variety of architectural styles that these sacred spaces embody.
Please allow 3 Hours for this tour.
Space is limited. Pre-registration is required.

About The Architectural Heritage Center
The Architectural Heritage Center’s mission is to “inspire people to conserve the art, craft, and context of historic buildings and places to promote our cultural heritage as a vital element of livable, sustainable, communities.” We seek to preserve the historic character and livability of our built environment, and to promote sustainability through the re-use of period homes and buildings.
Owned and operated by the non-profit Bosco-Milligan Foundation, we empower people in the Portland region to preserve both landmark buildings and the regular “vernacular” vintage homes and storefronts that collectively define our neighborhoods, traditional downtowns,culture, history, and quality of life.
