Kenton Real Estate

Neighborhood Overview

Just 10 minutes from downtown and home to the Portland International Raceway and Portland Expo Center, the Kenton neighborhood has perhaps the best known mascot of all of the city’s districts: a 31 foot tall statue of Paul Bunyan, erected in 1959 to commemorate Oregon State’s centennial celebration and one of the recent inductees into the National Register of Historic Places.

As an affordable working class neighborhood in the Northeast section of Portland, Kenton is filled with attractive and reasonably priced homes, grand historic buildings, and community pride.
