Standing for More Than a Century

This isn’t on the edge of the Portland, but it’s not far from it. The house dates back to the 1880s, when most of this area was pastureland or forest. Most of this neighborhood was built around 1912, when a streetcar line went in. But here and there, there are old, usually very small houses sprinkled about. If you imagine just right, the newer houses disappear, and you can see but a handful of distant neighbors.
