Portland Then & Now
As Portland’s built landscape transforms at an unprecedented pace, our connection to the city’s past faces challenges that can only be met through preservation and documentation. The book Portland Then and Now (Pavilion Books, 2017), offers side by side comparisons of views throughout the city over time. In this presentation, Dan Haneckow will talk about the changes Portland has experienced, while sharing photos from his book as well as unpublished photos from his personal collection. You’ll see images of startling transformation, contrasted with those of surprising continuity. When all is said and done, you’re sure to leave this presentation with a better understanding of contemporary Portland in relation to past incarnations.
Dan Haneckow is a Portland-based writer and historian and the author of the recently updated and re-issued book Portland Then and Now (Pavilion Books, 2017). He has previously presented at the AHC on a variety of topics, including Third Street – Portland’s “Great Light Way.” Copies of Portland Then and Now will be on sale at the program.

About the Architectural Heritage Center
The Architectural Heritage Center’s mission is to “inspire people to conserve the art, craft, and context of historic buildings and places to promote our cultural heritage as a vital element of livable, sustainable, communities.” We seek to preserve the historic character and livability of our built environment, and to promote sustainability through the re-use of period homes and buildings.
Owned and operated by the non-profit Bosco-Milligan Foundation, we empower people in the Portland region to preserve both landmark buildings and the regular “vernacular” vintage homes and storefronts that collectively define our neighborhoods, traditional downtowns,culture, history, and quality of life.
