Portland is the largest city in the state of Oregon and rests on the north-western coast of the United States of America. It is considered a seaport city because of its location and its frequency of importing and exporting goods. It was named after the city of Portland in Maine after the settlement was purchased in 1845 by a wealthy pioneer investor whose hometown was Portland, Maine. Before it was known as Portland, the city was called “Stumptown” as a reflection of the acres of trees that were cut to clear land for the original settlement. Because of the city’s abundance of maple, fir, hemlock, and cedar trees, the lumber industry allowed for a booming economy and a steady growth in population. Portland is split into five quadrants, North Portland, Northwest, Northeast, Southwest, and Southeast, each with their own characteristic neighborhoods and cultures. Old Town Chinatown in the Northwest for instance, offers almost two dozen Chinese-owned businesses and an architectural flare that is unique to the neighborhood. A part of Portland’s Old Town, the original settlement that became Portland, is considered the urban core of the city and holds some of the oldest buildings and art pieces. It also hosts the Saturday Market, a farmer’s market and craft fair that is held every weekend in March to December. This is just one facet of the city’s culture dedicated to art and an alternative lifestyle. One of the city’s historic sites, the Crystal Ballroom, began as the Cotillion Hall, a space for balls and galas in the early 1900s. In the 1960s, the building was used to host popular music events and quickly became a venue for entertainment of all kinds. It was built in 1914 and has been marked as a historic landmark that is still used as an entertainment venue. A tribute to the Oregon Trail, the Oregon Historical Society museum serves as the primary history museum for the entire state and features displays of early life in the settlements and journey to the western United States. Portland has been unofficially nicknamed “Rose City” due to the planting of roses along 20 miles of the city in the late 19th century and later on because of the city’s annual Rose Festival that began in 1907. The festival, and beautiful flowers that accompany it, greatly adds to the city’s attractiveness and includes parades with floats elaborately decorated with hundreds of flowers. Portland is also known for its environment-friendly initiatives and efforts to preserve and maintain greenspaces within the city. Alternative and punk music is very popular in the city and has deep roots in the city’s culture. Many well-known musical groups have developed in Portland as well as many legends that surround these musicians. With a vibrant music scene and numerous venues all over Portland, the city is often revered as a hub for blooming artists and musicians. The Portland Art Museum, opened in 1892, is the oldest in the western United States and one of the largest galleries with more than 40,000 pieces of artwork.
