These are educational tours of the infamous “Portland Underground” that focuses on the shanghai trade in the City of Portland that survived from 1850-1941, as well as “white slavery”, prohibition, and even the turn-of-the-century history of the Industrial Workers of the World (I.W.W.) labor movement in the Northwest. In addition, the early history of the Chinese is covered, along with the Japanese and the Gypsies. These tours are operated by the Cascade Geographic Society (CGS) and provide a unique glimpse back into the hidden (or buried) past of the “City of Roses”.
Where: Meet your guide OUTSIDE of the Merchant Hotel Building at 202 NW Davis St.
(between 2nd & 3rd Aves) in Old Town/Chinatown.
**Following the tour, groups may gather and eat at the many dining locations throughout the surrounding blocks.**
