How did a very ordinary American city turn into its coolest city (or so they say)? What was Portland like in the 19th century and early 20th century? What changed … when and why?

Members of Eastside and North Star Villages will join us for this presentation, followed by Q&A, given by Dr. Carl Abbott, Professor Emeritus of Urban Studies and Planning at Portland State University.

Dr. Abbott is a specialist on the history of American cities and city planning, on the history of the American West and Sunbelt, and on the later twentieth century United States more generally.  He is the author of “How Cities Won the West: Four Centuries of Urban Change in Western North America” (University of New Mexico Press, 2008).
