Portland Design Events: Old Town Portland Walking Tour

Written By Janessa Knodt | Jul 10, 2017

Old Town, the commercial district near the famous Skidmore Fountain and the oldest standing buildings in downtown, comprises this fascinating tour of Portland’s only National Landmark Historic District.

You’ll see the work of Portland’s earliest architects, learning how cast iron played a central role in their designs and how the city developed so close to the river. Along the way, you’ll also learn about some beautiful, but long-lost, buildings while also seeing great examples of historic preservation.
