History of Portland

Long before Lewis and Clark explored the land that would become Portland, the land belonged to the Chinook tribe. The settlers quickly made Portland their new home by cultivating the area and indulging in their traditions. In an effort to preserve Portland's natural beauty, the parliament established an urban growth boundary in 1970. Around 1990, Portland saw a somewhat meteoric rise in its population. The city's abundant nature and graphic design industries served as the main allurements. The influx of artists led to the construction of more galleries and theaters. And today, Portland is largely renowned for its vibrant art scene.
