I'll share insights about the architecture and history of the city/neighborhood with references to historic context and socio-economic beginnings and how the area has/or hasn't changed over the decades.
Explore the architecture, history and culture of Portland and environs with architectural historian Eric Wheeler. These walking tours feature downtown Portland and the surrounding historic neighborhoods as well as other communities in the greater Portland area. Eric's tours are designed for new arrivals, visitors and long-time Portland residents. The easy walking pace is designed to allow plenty of opportunity to see the sites, hear the guide and engage socially with other participants. The tours typically meet and end at a restaurant, pub or coffee shop, to allow for optional social time with the group before or after the tour.
We'll view the exterior of buildings with an occasional interior viewing of particular dwellings, businesses or public institutions.
Contact me the day before to confirm location, time, duration of tour and other details.
