The historic Irvington area is one of Portlands most beautiful neighborhoods. More than 75 homes have been designated as historically significant, ranging from Mediterranean mansions to English cottages to Prairie Craftsmansome having been turned into B&Bs.Irvington is an early example of a streetcar suburb; it contains the largest, most diverse, and intact collections of Queen Anne, Arts and Crafts, and Colonial Revival style residences in the city of Portland, as well as the state of Oregon. In 2010, Irvington was designated an historic district and was added to the National Register of Historic Places.Our walk will be about 3.5 to 4.0 miles long, with a chance to view many of the historic homes and at least eight heritage trees. Its a flat and comfortable walk, but you may wish to bring some water and a snack. We have also arranged for a guided tour of the Westminster Episcopalian Church, where the pew cushions are hand needlepoint(ed) and they match the beautiful stained glass windows. Finally, we will stop at the Broadway Grill and Brewery to satisfy our hunger and quench our thirst.
