Garthwick? Where is that?…you might ask. Located just south of Sellwood and north of the Waverly Country Club, this hidden residential neighborhood is a great “outdoor lab” for the most popular residential styles of the 20th century. Join us in an exploration of this often overlooked, off-the-beaten path neighborhood on the edge of Southeast Portland.

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.
