Perched atop NE Portland’s Alameda Ridge, Beaumont was known as the city’s “natural observatory” when it was established in 1910. People tiring of the hustle and bustle of downtown Portland could seek refuge in what was then the city’s northeastern outskirts – complete with great views, all the modern amenities of the time and of course, a bustling business district on NE Fremont Street. More than 100 years later, everything old is new again as an influx of new residents and businesses has brought a new energy to the district, making it one of the most enjoyable destinations in the city. Visitors come for the eclectic mix of shops, restaurants and services, but they leave feeling like they are a part of this thriving community.
