Laurelhurst Neighborhood Tour

The event is expired

In the early twentieth century, the Ladd Estate transformed their family farm into Laurelhurst, one of the city’s most iconic Portland neighborhoods. With windy streets and rolling hills, the neighborhood offered a suburban-style landscape complete with a romantic Olmsted-inspired park, tennis club, and a variety of house styles. This tour examines a portion of Laurelhurst near the park. Several standout houses are along the tour route, including the Green-Bitar House, designed by architect Herman Brookman; the neighboring H. Russell Albee House, designed by A. E. Doyle, and the Markham House subject of recent preservation efforts. You’ll also see a variety of other distinctive residences and even a couple of churches along the way.

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.
