Portland Then/Now: Southwest 12 Avenue & Alder Street

THEN: This is a photo of the First Presbyterian Church on the corner of SW 12th Avenue and SW Alder Street looking southwest, 1960. 

Located in downtown Portland at the corner of Southwest 12th Avenue and Alder Street the First Presbyterian Church of Portland is  listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

Construction on the magnificent structure began in 1886 and was completed in 1890.

The building includes ornate stained-glass windows made by Portland's Povey Brothers Studio.

NOW: The area has gone under a major transformation since 1960.

The neighboring Danmoore Hotel was demolished in 2005 and has been replaced by the First Presbyterian Church's garden and underground parking garage.

When the adjacent building was demolished the true beauty of the church was able to shine as many of its features and stained-glass windows could now be seen by the public and church parishioners. 

The garden is the site for many an episode of the NBC hit show, Grimm.
