The historic Irvington-Broadway area is filled with large, beautifully preserved homes, enhanced by mature trees, that have characterized this sought-after neighborhood for more than 100 years. The area is a designated Historic District, the largest in Oregon, because of its variety and high-quality, early 20th Century residential architecture. Walking through the neighborhood is a lesson in history with Queen Anne, Arts and Crafts, Craftsman, Colonial Revival, Prairie Style and Bungalow homes.
The Irvington neighborhood’s southern border includes a wide assortment of restaurants, bars, coffee houses, personal service establishments, among a series of boutique shops. While Irvington’s northern border is primarily residential, there are high-end, luxury businesses and retailers frequented by the locals. On Irvington’s east and west sides reside two large parks, and in between a unique and attractive collection of historic homes.
