Portland is well-known in the northwest as “Bridge City.” This tour surveys the design, construction, and history of Portland’s downtown area bridges. Along the way, you’ll learn about the historical forces that led to bridge construction, answering not only why they were built, but why they were built where they are. You’re sure to come away from this tour with a better understanding of how our bridges have shaped Portland’s growth and continue to impact the urban landscape.

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.
