About Eastmoreland

Eastmoreland is bounded on the west by the northern pacific RR tracks, on the north by Eastmoreland Country Club, on the south by Crystal Springs Blvd and on the east by SE 39 th . It is kind of set apart from the other neighborhoods- by the tracks, the country club and the trees and open space beyond Crystal Springs . It is a gorgeous area- probably the one of the prettiest neighborhoods of Portland .

 

Heading east, from Sellwood-Westmoreland area, across the Bybee Bridge, you will find yourself on a winding tree lined street, bordered on the north by a beautiful golf course and country club, and on the right, the beginning of a residential area of huge gorgeous homes - the branches of old trees hanging over the streets- giving it an aura of magic. This is Eastmoreland. It is a community that people stay in- if they can. There are many different architectural styles, including English country, Cape Cods , Tudors, and Colonial - not too many Craftsmen or Bungalows. It seems like a completely different city. Eastmoreland is built around Reed College-built in 1908- a Liberal Arts and Science College that actually has a working nuclear reactor! The college is situated on a beautiful 100-acre tree-lined campus in residential southeast Portland . The campus features a lake and canyon with abundant wildlife and native plants.
