Multnomah Village – Historic Hamlet in the Hills

Streetcar Development in the Wooded Wilderness
[divider line_type=”No Line” custom_height=”15″]

The area surrounding Multnomah Village was a hilly, densely wooded wilderness until the establishment of several dairy farms by Swiss immigrants in the 1890s. The development of the electric railway brought economic growth to the small enclave in the early 20th century.

We can still see evidence of “streetcar era” buildings on Capitol Hwy in the commercial core of the village today. We’ll walk to Gabriel Park, a very popular local gathering place for recreation with an interesting history.
