Fashioned after Washington DC, this neighborhood was the brainchild of William S. Ladd, the fifth mayor of Portland. Like spokes on a bicycle, the streets radiate from the central park. In 1891, Ladd began developing this close-knit neighborhood. Although World War I delayed construction, most of the grand old homes were built from 1910 to 1925. Today, the neighborhood is being restored and rejuvenated. The community and Portland Parks & Recreation maintain the neighborhood's five small parks.
