4) Willamette Bluffs History, Do You Know Some?

Hi my name is Spencer Pond I am a student at Portland State University.  I am in the process of writing a paper about the Willamette Escarpment, otherwise known as the Willamette Bluffs, for my non-fiction writing class, and was hoping to conduct a short interview with someone who may know about the history and/ or any interesting tales about park-like area located at about N. Willamette Blvd. and Jessup. Let me know if you or anybody within the Association are interested. As resident in this neighborhood I would love to learn more about the area myself.  Many Thanks!

Write to us at info @ OverlookNeighborhood.org and we’ll forward your message to Spencer.
