Time: 4:00PM to 6:00PM
Maximum capacity: 15 people

Description: Portland has a colorful history as a frontier boom town, ship building center, and major crossroads for trade in the Northwest. In the last 50 years, Portland has also emerged as a high-tech and cultural center. This tour will cover the architectural and cultural history of the city from its roots in the 1840s to its present status as the "Hipster" Mecca for weirdness.

Please wear comfortable shoes. The walking tour will meet at 4:00 PM at the Local Host Committee's table in the Registration area and proceed to the North exit to catch the 'Max' for a short ride over the river to Olde Towne and the Yamhill district. (All M&M 2015 registrants will have a free MAX pass over the meeting dates.) The tour takes approximately one hour and ends at the Rock Bottom Brewery for a beverage courtesy of Thermo Scientific.
