A Selection of Vintage Portland Area Homes, Landmarks, Museums and Gardens
History Takes Flight!
In celebration of the Rose Festival's strong ties to Portland history, the
Festival selected a few of its favorite homes, landmarks, museums and gardens around the Rose City. Every year we invite you to tour these lovely places that
are of historical, architectural or horticultural interest. You'll find an eclectic selection of places in different parts of the city where you can discover historical treasures.
This year we're celebrating the Centennial anniversary of young aviator Silas Christofferson, who for the 1912 Rose Festival flew off the top of the Multnomah Hotel in his Curtiss Pusher to Pearson Field (now home to Pearson Air Museum in Vancouver)! As we're recognizing this aviation feat, we want to highlight some places in Portland that have been part of aviation history. You may have lived in Portland a long time and not know about these many sites. So whether you're strolling through gardens, or gazing on an early-20th century biplane, we hope you'll be excited about Portland's rich historic heritage!
