Often referred to as Multnomah Village (the hub of the neighborhood’s activity), the 100+ year old community of Multnomah is located just southwest of Portland between SW 45th Rd, SW Vermont St. SW Capitol Hill Rd and I-5. Developed around the Oregon Electric Railway depot in the early 1900s, Multnomah features several historic buildings such as The Multnomah School (now the Multnomah Art Center), The Nelson Thomas Building (now Marco’s Café) and the 1925 Masonic Lodge (now the Lucky Lab Pub).
Neighborhood shopping is done in “the Village” and includes an array of storefronts ranging from antique stores, a toyshop, galleries, gift and specialty shops, wine bar, restaurants, cafes and breweries, as well as the much beloved independent bookstore, Annie Bloom’s Books. The Southwest Community Center offers swimming and exercise classes and the 90 acre Gabriel Park and quaint 6.4 acre Custer Park offer outdoor fun and tranquility for area residents.
Most of the contemporary homes here were built post WWII and include an ever-growing number of townhomes and condominiums. Ninety-four percent of residents rate the quality of life in Multnomah as “good” or “excellent.”
