Pioneers to Postmodern Downtown Tour
Take a whirlwind tour of the entire range of Portland’s architectural history. You’ll learn about the first wooden structures near the river as well as the elaborate cast iron, stone, and terra cotta-decorated buildings of the late 19th and early 20th centuries. From there you will be transported into the modern age and the sleek designs of Pietro Belluschi and the postmodern work of Michael Graves.
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.
