The National Register of Historic Places takes note of places of historical importance around the United States. Out of the 9,000 spots in the country, Oregon is home to 2,000, and a quarter of those are found in Portland. Here is a list of every spot on the National Register in Southeast Portland. And here is a list of every spot on the National Register in North and Northeast Portland: 114 in total. We'll be releasing lists for Portland's remaining quadrants in the coming weeks.
