Columbus Blown Off Course

The true story emerges: Columbus discovers mansion in NE Portland. The indigenous population of the Sabin district confiscated the Santa Maria and placed it on a mansion rooftop on Alameda St. Columbus was later discovered locked in the media room of the mansion, forced to watch Western movies on a 55″ LCD TV.

Alameda House

This house was a bit neglected a few years ago. New owners gave it a little curb appeal. One of the larger homes on Alameda St. in NE Portland.

Not Enough Space?

Thomas J. Autzen House

The Thomas J. Autzen house is 10,000 sq. ft and takes up a triangular shaped block all by itself. It is arguably the most prestigious home in Portland and is currently for sale for $2.35M. The current owners have invested $.5M into renovations. The home is hidden behind a hedge.The day I went by these two fellas were replacing window panes.

Thomas Prince Home

The Thomas Prince Home on Alameda St. This is the third home I have ‘discovered’ on this street. In researching this area I found a post on the official Portland city webpage that lists all 5,000 properties, residential and commercial, that are  in the Portland area and considered historic. On this list  there are 17 addresses listed from 22nd street to 32nd street. I know have a good document to work with in terms of photographing all the historic homes along Alameda St. Should be fun. I’ll post them as I find them.

Entrance Door

Alameda St., in NE Portland, is a pretty posh neighborhood. I guess posh does not exclude being a bit different? The entrance door reminds me of a checker board. I am not sure why someone would place a life-size replica of a jockey on their property.

Piglet on Roof

Piglet on Roof

Piglet on a roof on Alameda St., Portland, Oregon. I’m not sure what, if any, is the significance of a cement piglet on one’s roof, but there you have it.
