How it all began
Originally constructed in 1925 as a Woodmen of the World Lodge and Meeting Hall for Multnomah Camp 77, the building is a well-preserved and excellent example of 20th century classically inspired architecture.
Designed by local Portland architect, W.W. Lucius, the building is distinguished by the formal facade with stained and leaded glass fanlights atop the three doorways of the central entrance pavilion, complete with an elegant marble stairway leading up to the second floor’s Grand Ballroom.
The building has played a key role in the makeup of what is considered the core of the East Side’s historic commercial district. Buildings in this district range from large masonry structures constructed in the romantic Victorian styles of the 1880’s to highly stylized 30’s era buildings.
Prior to it’s most recent purchase in late 2017, the building previously offered only two ballrooms for hosting various events. However, the new owner quickly began renovating the space which included adding a new elevator and several additional rooms totaling more than 20,000 square feet of event space once all is said and done.
The venue is open for viewing Monday through Friday, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., or by appointment. Contact us today to schedule your private viewing with an event planner.Contact Us
