Portland Then/Now: Portland State University and SW Park Avenue.

THEN: According to Vintage Portland, "this image captures Portland State’s early campus expansion period during the mid-1960s. Closest to us is the College Center building (now Smith Memorial Student Union) in the process of acquiring its next few levels and a library.

The mansion across the street is the Jennings House sitting next to the Counseling and Testing Center and State Hall (later Cramer Hall).

The Jennings House is where students registered for classes and rather than demolish it when Cramer Hall was expanded in 1969-1970, it was preserved and relocated a few blocks south to the corner of Broadway and Jackson where it burned down shortly thereafter. Also pictured is Old Main (now Lincoln Hall)."

The photo was said to have been taken sometime during 1964. The image was provided to Vintage Portland by PSU's Architecture, Engineering & Construction Archives at Portland State University.

NOW: Portland State University currently enrolls over 28,000 students, with over 15,000 women and 13,000 men strong.

The streets that once divided the campus in the 1960's are now pedestrian pathways that include food carts and is intersected by a trolley line that runs throughout the campus and serves all of downtown and the Pearl District.

The pedestrian paths and greenspaces are part of the South Park Blocks that start at the far end of PSU continue to the center of the downtown.
