Northeast Portland’s Alameda Park addition was first platted in 1909. Construction followed in 1910 and by 1920, hundreds of houses and a busy streetcar line had been built in the new subdivision. Several waves of home building – and generations of neighborhood life – followed periods of economic expansion to shape the neighborhood we know today. In pictures and words, Alameda neighborhood historian Doug Decker will track the initial development of Alameda, profile key builders and building styles, and share stories of the early years from former residents.
