High-Style Architecture Perched Above Downtown
Perched high above downtown Portland, the King’s Hill neighborhood is home to some of the most elegant residences in the city. At the beginning of the 20th century, Portland was the major metropolis of the Pacific Northwest, and many of the newly wealthy “merchant princes” of the city chose to live here.
King’s Hill is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and includes over 100 properties in the district. We will see several of the finest examples of high-style architecture, designed by the prominent architects of the day.
