Dropping Anchor in Portland
Portland was once an independent city, and you can still see the history here. There's a home in Portland that's over 200 years old, and several other historic buildings that have become museum attractions. This neighborhood was built because of the steamboat traffic that rolled down the Ohio River constantly, and Portland is still beautiful from the water. This community looks pretty great from land, too.
More recently, Portland has become a center for hip art culture in the city. New galleries and museums are popping up all over the community, and artists of all ages are flocking to this neighborhood.
They're drawn to the art scene, but they're also drawn to the homes. Portland is still full of historic architecture. There are homes here that have been fully renovated, and houses that are ready to become someone's artistic project. The pretty homes in Portland are full of opportunity. Which one of them will inspire your future? Cruise past Portland this August to find out.
