This eleven-block downtown area was first platted and donated to the City in 1852, transforming a fire break parcel into the most desirable residential area of its day –complete with schools, playgrounds, stately homes and places of worship. Come take a stroll through the groves of elms and recount some of the stories they would love to tell about the area’s history and architecture. The South Park Blocks stand alone as a place of revitalization, refreshment and cultural allure.

Imago Theatre’s The Reunion, Six Characters in Search of the Punch John, her husband, is continually ignored. Delores, his wife, tells all she meets that she’s dying. The soon-to-be-gone and the invisible, Carol Triffle’s motifs, are lightly cloaked in this existential comedy of bad manners at a high school reunion. Triffle’s universe questions, comments, and insults with fire-words skewering each character. All are alone and desperate for companionship yet bound by their aloneness. Live music jolts the absurdity to bubbly heights and side tracks serious moments into comedic ditches. The Reunion can’t be codified and flies like a wild aircraft ricocheting off muddy memories, regrets and the uncertainty of hope. Delores (Danielle Vermette) is an enthusiastic but reluctant pilot of her life. On her one and last night’s voyage, Delores refuses to touch down. Nonetheless, all is good when she lands smoothly, easily and unharmed (almost). The Reunion plays June 9 through June 24 at Imago Theatre, 17 SE 8th Avenue, Fridays and Saturdays @ 7:30 and one Sunday performance at 2pm on June 18. Tickets are $10-$20 pay what you will and can be

Garthwick? Where is that?...you might ask. Located just south of Sellwood and north of the Waverly Country Club, this hidden residential neighborhood is a great "outdoor lab" for the most popular residential styles of the 20th century. Join us in an exploration of this often overlooked, off-the-beaten path neighborhood on the edge of Southeast Portland.

When Ralph Lloyd began his 35-year long project to create an east Portland "downtown" in 1926, the site for his project, Holladay's Addition, was one of Portland's grandest neighborhoods. The remaining neighborhood, now known as Sullivan’s Gulch, was heavily impacted by the development of Lloyd Center but still retains some wonderful architecture.

Over the last 20 years, the Pearl has been transformed from an outdated and tired industrial area into one of Portland’s premier residential and retail districts. A century ago, the area went through a similar transformation—from a working class housing area at the edge of a marsh to the city’s premier industrial and warehousing area. Many of Portland’s best known architects of the period designed buildings for important local and national companies. Most of these buildings remain, with their exteriors intact and new uses inside.

In addition to the well-known neighborhoods of Irvington, Ladd's Addition, or Laurelhurst, Portland is also home to the lesser known but architecturally rich neighborhoods of Piedmont and Walnut Park. These areas contain many fine examples of familiar styles such as Queen Anne and Arts & Crafts but also the less frequently seen forms of Byzantine, Jacobean and Prairie style. Along the way you’ll see the work of architects like Joseph Jacobberger, whose North Portland Branch Library has stood as a neighborhood landmark for more than a century.
