Sellwood Moreland Improvement League

Sellwood Community Center now on Historic Register

Dec 07, 2006

SMILE initiated and financed an effort to get the 96-year-old Sellwood Community Center, operated by the Portland Parks Department, listed on the National Historic Register. Neighborhood historian and active volunteer Eileen Fitzsimons pursued the tedious and lengthy process of preparing the application and presenting it to the state commission, and she reported at the December SMILE General Public Meeting that officials in Washington DC had approved the application and added the Center to the Register on November 15th.

The listing confers benefits on the city?’s stewardship of the building and should reduce the cost of its operation, while making it eligible for grants.
