Cambridge Block, 1955

The Cambridge Block was built in 1884 by Henry W. Corbett for $75,000. Architect Warren H. Williams incorporated many cast-iron design features from other Portland buildings, including Cooks’ Block. The Cambridge Block stood on the southwest corner of SW 3rd and Morrison until its demolition in 1962. You can find Pioneer Place there now.
