Read How One Portland Neighborhood Banded Together To Save An Important Landmark.

The Ocobock Mansion, with a long and interesting history, was headed for demoliton before a Northeast Portland Neighborhood got involved.

The 1913 Mansion was a fixture in Portland's African-American community and it is rumored that Martin Luther King visited the house in 1961.

It's also a story of how buildings in the National Register of Historic Places can be taken off the Register and demolished! 

Read the stories and let's learn from them!  This one, at least, has a happy ending!
