Stumptown

February 5th, 2008 Comments

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?
