The history of the SE Portland neighborhoods has been preserved in almost all of them; Portland is passionately protective of and proud of its past.
Oregonians were the first pioneers, strong, proud entrepreneur types seeking a better life across the country in covered wagons.
They constructed it when they arrived, and that history is woven into the fiber of every Portlander.
That is, I suppose, why the SE Portland neighborhoods have been saved, repaired, and safeguarded.
They battle tooth and nail to preserve historic homes, parks and open spaces, and even trees!
Portlanders value environmental stewardship and prefer to live in a city where they can walk, bike, or take public transportation.
Each of the SE Portland neighborhoods has a sense of community that is maintained and nurtured by the small local cafés, restaurants, and shops.
It allows people to get to know one another and to desire to look after their entire area!
