REDMOND, OR -- A section of Downtown Redmond is now listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Community Development Director Kate Porsche says the district includes 43 buildings mainly along SW Sixth Street, between Forest and Cascade avenues. "We’ve got this really great collection of historic buildings in the downtown core; many of them from the ‘30s." Porsche has worked on the designation request since spring.

 

The area is said to reflect the economic and commercial growth the city experienced from its founding in 1910 to 1960. It was formally listed by the Keeper of the National Register on October 30 and is Redmond’s second historic district. The registry is managed by the National Park Service.
