Old Town History Night
Admission: Free to the public
It's been known as Whitechapel, the North End, and the Tenderloin. It's been a domain of sailors, loggers, workers, and immigrants. For most of its history, the Portland neighborhood just North of Burnside has been something of an outcast part of Portland- a rough patch where crime, hard labor, and destitution could find quarter. It's Old Town, Portland's skid row.
Come find out how a historic neighborhood right on Downtown's doorstep became a domain of squalor!
