Schoolchildren learned long ago that the little town of Linnton, which for almost a century has been under the shadow of the emerald St Johns Bridge, has bragging rights. The first Conestoga wagons to raft the Columbia River landed here in 1843. The settlers’ goal: to “keep Oregon out of the hands of the English,” history teachers told their pupils.

Today, anyone wanting to study the town that was later enveloped by Portland can head to class and stay. The former Linnton School, built in the 1920s, was converted to condos 70 years later. One is for sale at $489,900.

The loft-style home at 10456 NW 2nd St has 2,277 square feet of living, says listing agent Paul D’Souza of Living Room Realty.

Inside the Georgian-style brick building are towering arched windows – perfect for school kids and adults to daydream about life at the confluence of the Columbia and Willamette rivers. Making skipping class more tempting: the Linnton Look Hike is just a jump away from the former playground.

Tucked above Northwest St Helens Road (US Route 30) makes it a “short hop” to Sauvie Island farms, downtown offices and restaurants, and St. Johns’ Cathedral Park on the other side of the bridge, says D’Souza.

The two-level loft has an open floor plan with exposed brick walls. There is a living room with a stone fireplace, kitchen with white cabinets, dining area, den plus two bedrooms. The master suite spans 14 feet and includes a balcony – as well as two bathrooms and a powder room.

“A large terrace and patio make this an entertainer’s delight,” says D’Souza
