Portland Then/Now: The Portland Hotel/Pioneer Courthouse Square
Thursday, September 25, 2014
Currently in its place? Pioneer Courthouse Square.
In fact, much of the Hotel's original stone foundation reportedly lies under the present-day sidewalks that surround the Square.
NOW: Affectionately known as Portland's "living room," Pioneer Courthouse Square is the city's most highly visible public space. Each year the park hosts over 300 programmed events, while helping bring together community volunteers and private sector contributions. This unique relationship has helped designate the park as one of the most successful public spaces in the United States.
