Sellwood Neighborhood

Sellwood-Moreland is a neighborhood on a bluff overlooking the Willamette River in Southeast PortlandOregon, bordering Westmoreland to the north, Eastmoreland to the east, and the city of Milwaukie to the south. Sellwood originated as an independent city, as a rival of nearby early Portland on the 1,320-acre (5.3 km2) Donation Land Claim of Reverend John Sellwood, who sold the claim in 1882 to the Sellwood Real Estate Company.[3] The town of Sellwood was incorporated by the Oregon Legislative Assembly on February 25, 1889.[4] It was annexed by the city of Portland in 1893.

The neighborhood is linked to Southwest Portland across the Willamette by the Sellwood Bridge, the southernmost of Portland’s bridges. The bridge is due for a costly replacement or renovation.

Sellwood has an amusement park named Oaks Park, many restaurants, and many upscale antique shops along the Antique Row on SE 13th Avenue.
