The Boise and Eliot neighborhoods in North Portland are rich in diverse history and culture, serving as the historic heart of Portland’s African American community. Over the past few decades, dramatic changes have altered the face of the region, something which can go easily unnoticed to those who don’t know the history. This tour provides a great opportunity for new residents and visitors to reconnect with the roots of this community, from the history of the City of Albina to Vanport and beyond.

Know Your City and the Northeast Coalition of Neighborhoods (NECN) are partnering to provide “the Hidden History of Albina” tour. Tour destinations include public art, historic buildings, and green spaces. Here are some of the historic locations that will be visited:
- The only church in Portland where Martin Luther King Jr. preached, Vancouver Avenue Baptist Church.
- One of the few remaining black owned businesses on North Mississippi, Sons of Haiti Masonic Lodge.
- The historic headquarters of the Urban League of Portland.
- Dawson Park and the remnants of Albina’s City Hall building.

Northeast Coalition of Neighborhoods
Portland Development Commission
