SALVATION ARMY “INDUSTRIAL HOME” BUILDING TOUR SET
A hard-hat tour of the Salvation Army’s “Industrial Home” building will
take place from 1 – 3:30 p.m., March 3, at 200 SE Martin Luther King Jr.
In Portland’s Central Eastside, the “Industrial Home” building is
undergoing an adaptive re-use project and getting a new lease on life.
Acquired by the Salvation Army in 1913, the 26,000 square foot
structure, built in 1893, once housed a feed and hay business. A 1930s
remodel doubled the building’s size and applied a “facelift” designed by
architect Frederick Manson White.Known as the “Industrial home” model,
the building provided jobs and housing for the homeless under one roof,
including a workers dormitory, dining facilities, and a chapel.
Over the years, remodels removed or concealed many of the building’s
historic features. The hard-hat tour will provide an opportunity to view
a transformation in progress as workers uncover original materials and
restore historic features. For further information and to
pre-registration for this tour, visit www.visitahc.org (
