PDX Social History Guide

By Elsewise LLC

This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.


The PDX Social History Guide features stories about people and places vital to the city of Portland's cultural heritage. Portland has been home to many ethnic groups and cultures — including Native American, African American, Chinese, Japanese, Greeks and Jews, among others. Because of urban development, some of these communities have little physical remnants of their neighborhoods. Consequently, many visiting Portland for the first time — and even those that have lived here many years — are unaware of the city's history.

This app brings these stories to the surface through:
* audio clips from interviews with a dozen local experts
* theme illustrations and historical photos
* summary text (in case you forgot your headphones, and don't want to listen out loud)
* maps to help you find the historical locations
* links to read more about many of these topics

Portland-based non-profit Know Your City conducted the interviews and research. Illustrations and icons by Kate Bingaman-Burt give this app a unique, hand-crafted style.

Please note: This app covers historical places, people and events centered around the downtown area of Portland, Oregon, USA.
