North Capitol Mall Heritage Park, D Street

At the north limit of CAN-DO neighborhood, between Summer and Winter Streets, on the south side of D Street, the North Capitol Mall Heritage Park contains 7 former residences, now Oregon state offices. Only the Adophson (labeled Adoph here) and Irwin houses, both Local Landmarks, are in their original locations. This park, a transition between the new state buildings to the south and the residential area of Grant Neighborhood, is beautifully landscaped on both sides of our historic Mill Creek. Five of these are designated as Local Landmarks.
