Multnomah Village is a charming neighborhood nestled in the city of Portland, Oregon, known for its small-town atmosphere and vibrant community spirit. Only about a five-minute drive from downtown Portland, Multnomah celebrated 100 years as a business district in 2009.
A celebrated and diverse business district since it was first established as a train station in the early 1900’s by the Oregon Electric Railway, many of the original buildings in Multnomah Village are still intact, and the compact pedestrian-friendly “downtown” retains the ambiance and spirit of that earlier period.
Multnomah Village offers a unique mix of retail stores, restaurants, brewpubs, art galleries and more – a majority of which are locally owned. Anchored by the Multnomah Arts Center, the village also offers a range of professional services including banking, real estate, financial and legal services as well as auto, medical, beauty and health services.
Residents and visitors can enjoy a leisurely afternoon exploring the various art galleries and antique stores or savoring a delicious meal at one of the many cozy restaurants and pubs. With its tree-lined streets and community-focused events, Multnomah Village fosters a strong sense of belonging, making it a beloved and cherished neighborhood in Portland.
