I have to disagree with the statement in the book summary about the idea that "most of Portland's historic houses are still standing" as the majority of the houses highlighted in this book have unfortunately been demolished to 'make way for progress'. Even the Pittock Mansion (on the cover) was barely saved from this destruction.

The majority of Portland's classic houses are still standing, a rich legacy and essential link to a time of stunning architectural accomplishment. This lavishly illustrated volume features more than 300 residences representing twenty-three distinct architectural styles from Greek Revival, Queen Anne, and Tudor to Bungalow, Prairie, Craftsman, and the uniquely regional Northwest Style. In a fascinating home tour, the history of the city comes to life as well, with key information about the architects, original owners, and distinguishing features of each structure. These homes are the work of the most talented architects of Portland's first century, and each reflects the careful blending of national and international influences with local trends and tastes. In more than 200 plans and drawings and over 600 photographs both historical and contemporary, Classic Houses of Portland, Oregon, presents both the houses that remain and some vanished glories of the past. All take on a new importance today, as historical treasures and as exemplars of design values and quality that are now so rare. A useful appendix lists the houses by neighborhood for those who wish to explore the riches of Portland's architectural heritage.

This book is well researched and gives a look into Portland, Oregon's most beautiful mansions. It is so interesting to hear about the architects and owners. Very nice coffee table book.

I love old houses and enjoyed this collection of photos, description of styles and the occasionally floor plan of these old, elegant, interesting houses.

Great book about the Victorian, Edwardian, and early 20th century mansions of Portland Oregon. Full of clear b & w photos from the period, floor plans, and descriptions

This book is just wonderful if you are interested in exploring homes in Portland, Oregon without actually having to travel there. It is a great history of homes.

This was purchased as a gift for my architect daughter, who lives in Portland. Of course, I read it before I sent it to her, and I couldn't put it down. Great historical houses, and an all-encompassing history of Portland itself. They sure don't build 'em like they used to. Ed Lane

A gif and friend loved it.

The cover sells the book, the inside is not worth.
At first blush, the following may sound like what the late SPY magazine referred to as "logrolling." What I mean is that when I began researching a project about Portland architecture, the gentleman I most wanted to consult on the topic was William J. Hawkins, III. He is well known for his erudition, depth of knowledge, and courtliness, and I counted myself lucky that he had time to lend me a hand.

I mention all that in the interest of full disclosure. As to this book, like any researcher, I am pleased when I can find a comprehensive and reliable reference. And when it's as well written and beautifully laid out as this book, well, that's when research stops being a job and it turns into a pleasure. Superbly done.
