City of Portland Archives

I love portland. Today, the Stanley Parr archive were opened for public viewing. I went and visited this afternoon and really enjoyed what they had to offer.

The building up off N Columbia use to be the city incinorator and now serves as the repository of all things public record. There were ledgers of liens and arrest records and such.. There were original maps of portland from the 1800’s. There were personal records fro commisioner Sten and then Mayor Goldschmidt. I was in heaven.

anyone can use the services of the archives and the city archivists. If you are interested in something about your neighborhood, they can help you through the tons of information to find what you seek. i am thinking of getting an appt. to find out more about Albina.

Sent from my phone, probably while hiding from the man.
