Historic Linnton combines the best of Portland. Nestled along the Willamette River and Forest Park, its gateway location — five miles northwest of downtown and three miles southeast of Sauvie Island — makes it a natural haven for people who appreciate a strong sense of place, civic pride, and quirky isolation.
Winner of the 2005 Spirit of Portland Award, the community of Linnton is proud of its neighborhood involvement. Our residents include a diverse mix of professionals, artists and salt-of-the-earth working folks who champion unity, independence and a rustic spirit.
Set along NW St. Helens Road, its boundaries cover more than 4,000 acres that combine industrial land along the riverbank and 300 homes tucked into ancient basalt flows. Because of its east-facing hillside geography, views of the St. Johns Bridge and the Cascade mountains are always a glance away.
