The early settlers of Portland were so busy making lumber, and the land was so rich and plentiful, they didn’t bother to remove the stumps.  Formerly a pejorative, and now a term of endearment, Stumptown is where I call home.

Non-pretentious, open, eclectic, and full of life and energy.  This is life in Portland and I’m home!

What's this?
