Artsy, eclectic, and fashionable, Portland’s historic Mississippi Avenue is home to a bevy of unique businesses. With a rich history that includes Native Americans (Clackamas Tribe), German and Scandinavian settlers and the 1948 Vanport flood displaced African American community, this neighborhood delivers diversity unparalleled in Oregon.
Located in inner-North Portland, Mississippi has become one of the most popular places to live and hang out in the metro area. Renovation sits side-by-side with new mixed-use buildings and popular food carts, giving the area its hip, youthful vibe. Replete with distinctive shops, entertainment (Mississippi Studios), galleries (Good) and notable restaurants (Lucky’s Fifty-Fifty, PorQue No, and Gravy) and home to the ReBuilding Center – Mississippi Avenue is Portland personified.
Home and property values in this neighborhood have increased considerably in recent years, as Mississippi has grown into a contender for culture, shopping and fun. Houses here range from quaint Cottages, Bungalows and Craftsman, to modest Four Squares and Ranches. The neighborhood offers walkability (a WalkScore of 83), public transportation in the form of bus lines and access to Tri-Met’s Interstate Max lines via the Failing Street pedestrian bridge and easy access to I-405.
