Started in 2007, alamedahistory.org is a blog dedicated to collecting and sharing knowledge about the life of old houses, buildings and neighborhoods in Portland, Oregon. The basic notion of this blog is that insight about the past adds new meaning to the present.
The site is run by Alameda neighborhood historian Doug Decker who is available to research your home or vintage building, or to provide you with ideas and resources for you to do the research yourself. Doug conducts architectural, historical and social histories through interviews, document and archive research, photo research and other explorations to create a thorough understanding of a property and its impact, significance and role over time.
Consider yourself invited to participate in this forum by sharing your own comments, observations, photos, questions and discussion about neighborhood and old house history.
