Foster Area

FABA and Slabtown Tours are partnering to bring monthly historic tours to Foster Road. Led by expert guide, Dr. March, these tours will highlight Foster’s evolution, unique history, and current mix of eclectic businesses.

“This bike- and pedestrian-friendly Southeast Portland neighborhood has a character all its own. Expert guide Dr. March has worked with community members and local businesses to highlight a section of Foster Road once served by the Mt. Scott trolley line with the highest concentration of theaters outside of Downtown. Peek into the suburban evolution of fast food culture, preservation efforts, the shift to quality coffee and vegan options. One tour highlight not to be missed is the lovingly restored 1922 Phoenix Pharmacy building.  Once the widest road in Portland the neighborhood offers an authentic Portland adventure.”

These historic tours will take place monthly every last Saturday. Tours will begin at Kainos Coffee and last roughly 90 minutes. Learn more and reserve your tickets here: Foster Road – Historic Walking Tour – Slabtown Tours – N & NW Portland Walking Tours.
