It’s celebration time!

It’s been a few months since the release of The Railway Palaces of Portland, Oregon: The Architectural Legacy of Henry Villard. Because things have been busy, I’ve had little time to mark the occasion. At the end of this month, I’m correcting that, with a (slightly belated) book launch day!

Join me on Thursday, March 30th, for one of two events.

> First, at 2:30 pm, I’ll be hosting a walking tour of Henry Villard’s architectural legacy. This two-hour tour will take us from the city’s waterfront past Villard’s two station projects, then wind up at the site of Portland House, the hotel designed for Villard by McKim, Mead, & White. Along the way, I’ll explain how Villard’s many projects have profoundly reshaped the city of Portland. Tickets are $12, but the tour has limited capacity, so reserve your tickets soon!

> Second, at 6:30 pm, I’ll be giving a short talk and doing book signings at the Architectural Heritage Center. Seating is limited and first-come-first served. Please RSVP to reserve your seat to Val Ballestrem, AHC Education Manager, at

If you’d like to make one or both events, please, register early! If you can’t make either event, I’ll be having a few more talks and signings later in the Spring, so stay tuned.
