Portland’s Historic Neighborhoods

Presentation by architectural history researchers Jim Heuer and Robert Mercer. West coast cities boomed in the early 20th century and Portland was no exception. The rapid growth of electric streetcars led to the rise of "suburban" developments. Heuer and Mercer have been studying the evolution of Portland architecture for the last 17 years. As both life partners and research partners they found common ground in a fascination for the ways our buildings and places are shaped by cultural and technological change.
