Northwest Portland is replete with fantastic historic houses. This second installment of our popular Historic Alphabet District Homes tour explores another section of the area, where you’ll learn of its transformation from farmland to Portland’s “Millionaire Row”. Featured architectural styles include Italianate, Queen Anne, and Jacobean Revival. You’ll also learn about the nuanced differences in American Revival styles, and see one of Portland’s rare Romanesque Revival homes, the famous Mackenzie House.
Parking in Northwest Portland can be a challenge. We recommend carpooling, bus, or the Portland Streetcar.

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.
