Laurelhurst is one of Portland's oldest and most sophisticated neighborhoods west of the Willamette River. Established in 1909, this neighborhood is full of vintage homes, Victorian designs, estates, and luxury properties. It's located just south of Interstate 84 between Hollywood, Sullivans Gulch, Kerns, North Taber, and the Sunnyside neighborhood. It stretches from SE. Stark St. N. to the freeway, and from NE. 44th Ave. to NE. 32nd Ave. In the center is a roundabout stretching out in four different directions with Laurelhurst Park being one of the largest landmarks in the lower Southwest quadrant of the community.
The Laurelhurst neighborhood features undulating streets surrounding Laurelhurst Park. Stone markers flank the entrances to the area and at the center of the neighborhood, is the roundabout or Coe Circle, which contains a gilded equestrian statue of Joan of arc, a World War I Memorial. This historical district was officially listed in the National Register of Historic Places in 2019.
