About Alameda

Gravelly Hill Road was established by the Bowering Family in 1859. On land claimed by the family, a small community of individuals began to develop on top the large gravel bar formation which spans six miles to Rocky Butte.

Fifty years after the Bowering family’s occupation of the area, the Alameda Land Company would develop the exclusionary Alameda Park subdivision, which would later become incorporated into the City of Portland. Today, Portland’s Alameda neighborhood spans  NE Prescott Street to Knott Street, positioned between the Sabin and Beaumont-Wilshire neighborhoods.
