Portland Buildings Lost and Saved
Portland’s history shows that urban renewal often meant demolition of many of the city’s unique historic structures. Preservationists in the community have also saved many of the historic properties and landmarks. The city and historic preservation groups are in the forefront of saving our historic resources.

Critical to these successes are talented individuals and companies, who accept social responsibility for redevelopment and have found creative ways to recycle these properties into useful and functional structures.
