Off to the Highlands Part II:  GPL Walking Tour of Deering Highlands

Off to the Highlands Part II: GPL Walking Tour of Deering Highlands

In the late 19th century the woody ledges and farmland in Deering’s Highlands emerged as one of the city’s premier residential neighborhoods. A horse drawn trolley line, introduced in 1863, helped fuel the area’s early growth, as did the aftermath of the 1866 fire and overcrowding in Portland’s peninsula neighborhoods. The first developers in Deering were looking for land for large homes with gardens and orchards in a rustic landscape.

Landmarks is wrapping up the final part of a two-year survey to document these residences. Join us on August 28th to discover the history and treasures of one of Portland's most beautiful suburban neighborhoods. The evening will feature a presentation on our recent work and light refreshments. The event is free but registration is strongly encouraged. 

*One of our graduate interns, Madeline Berry, is featured in this photo surveying Coyle Street.
