About Linnton - Portland Oregon
The small neighborhood of Linnton offers the best of both worlds when it comes to Portland real estate. Nestled between one of the largest parks in the Portland area, Forest Park and the Willamette River, this long, narrow community nestled along Highway 30 offers beautiful views of the river with a backdrop of an expansive forested park and trails. Forest Park blends into Linnton Park, located just north in the Northwest Portland region. Many of the homes look across the river to Cathedral Park, University Park, and the St. John's neighborhood.
The neighborhood of Linnton is also close to the agricultural community of Sauvie Island, the largest island along the Columbia River. The neighborhood extends north somewhat beyond Portland city limits into unincorporated Multnomah County ending at the Sauvie Island bridge. The community was named after US Sen. Lewis F. Linn of Missouri a proponent of settling in Oregon County. It actually had its own post office up until 1975 and was incorporated on October 5, 1910. Linnton was soon annexed in 1915 by Portland bringing with it much of today's Forest Park. Today, it's a bedroom community and affluent suburb of downtown Portland, Beaverton, and Northwest Portland.
