Goose Hollow, 1892

Goose Hollow is shown in this 1892 photo from the hillside above. Jefferson Street cuts left-right across the bottom while 18th goes diagonally from bottom-right and crosses in front of the Exposition Building at left-center. The large building at lower-right is still with us today but the surrounding area has been filled in so that the main structure is at ground level.

  1. Great picture! I am wondering if the large building at the middle left is the old tannery and where PGE Park/Civic Stadium is at? Still wondering if the old vats from the tannery are still buried there as the story goes….

  2. Can anyone identify the large multi-storied victorian building with the two tall spires just right of center as old Portland High School? I think what I’m referring to would be the 1885 high school if that’s what it is.

    You’re correct John, that is the old Portland High School.
