Come learn the “checkerboard history” of Sellwood. Before it became a part of the City of Portland in 1893, Sellwood was an independent, incorporated town. This tour takes you through a section of the original Sellwood tract, where you’ll see a variety of houses and commercial buildings, some dating back to the town’s earliest days.

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.
