Update: Check out the answer to this month’s winning PDXplained question: “What population(s) originally lived in St. Johns, and are those communities suffering now as a result of gentrification?”
St. Johns is one of Portland’s most rapidly developing neighborhoods. It’s located at the top of the peninsula where the Willamette River and the Columbia River meet. St. Johns was first incorporated as a separate city in 1912, but became part of Portland just a few years later in 1915.
St. Johns is packed with history and home to one of Portland’s iconic bridges — the St. Johns bridge, shown above in its gothic glory.
