Walking Tour of the Lloyd

  • Metro 600 Northeast Grand Avenue Portland, OR, 97232 United States

Join a free walking tour of the Lloyd Neighborhood, led by architectural historian Eric Wheeler. In the early 1960s, urban renewal created the Lloyd District, Portland's version of the "mega-mall," and Memorial Coliseum, the largest sports/entertainment center in the city. Today, the Lloyd District is in transition. Join us for an easy urban stroll in this NE Portland neighborhood that the city of Portland hopes to transform into another high density, livable urban enclave. We'll also learn about two ambitious entrepreneurs, Ben Holladay (1819-1887) and Ralph Lloyd (1875-1953), whose legacies live on in name and in spirit.

Meet at the top of the stairs at Apotheker Plaza next to Metro.
