About Past Portland

PastPortland is dedicated to exploring and uncovering the history of Portland, Oregon. We do this by compiling information from old city directories, maps and newspapers into one central spot. We're always looking for new ways to share the city's history and we're constantly expanding the information available on the site. 

By joining our Patreon, you'll help us cover the time and expense in keeping our site running and actively developing! Additionally, your subscription will unlock additional features, such as full historical listings, browsing and searching by individual and organization, viewing old photos and more.
1 of 10 patrons
Once we hit 10 patrons, we'll host an in-person meetup to celebrate and to share some of the additional features we're working on.
