This list presents the full set of buildings, structures, objects, sites, or districts designated on the National Register of Historic Places in Northeast Portland, Oregon, and offers brief descriptive information about each of them. The National Register recognizes places of national, state, or local historic significance across the United States. Out of over 90,000 National Register sites nationwide, Oregon is home to over 2,000, and over one-fourth of those are found partially or wholly in Portland. While these sites are widely spread across all six of Portland's quadrants, heavy concentrations are found in the Downtown and Southwest Hills neighborhoods of the Southwest quadrant, and the Northwest District neighborhood of the Northwest quadrant.
Only historic places within the municipal boundaries of Portland are shown in this list and its four companion lists for the other quadrants. Some sites beyond city limits will appear in other lists showing "Portland" as a general locality, but are excluded here. Although Portland's legal boundaries extend into Clackamas and Washington counties, all of the city's National Register sites lie within Multnomah County.
|||Name on the Register||Image||Date listed||Location||Description|
|1||Simon Abraham Duplex||August 5, 1999
|522–530 NE San Rafael Street
||This 1890 Queen Anne house is one of extremely few duplexes in the Eliot neighborhood remaining from the late 19th/early 20th centuries. Its early ownership by German Americans and Scandinavian Americans testifies to the settlement by ethnic immigrants in this part of the former city of Albina.|
|2||Alco Apartments||January 17, 2017
|100–110 NE Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard
||Built in 1912, this commercial/apartment building typifies the mixed-use development that occurred along Portland's eastside streetcar lines during the early 20th century. Its origins are strongly echoed in the 21st-century renaissance of mixed-use construction and streetcars in Portland, with a new-generation streetcar line immediately opposite the west elevation.|
|3||Frederick Armbruster Cottage||February 16, 2001
|502 NE Tillamook Street
||This 1898 house is a locally-important example of the application of the Queen Anne style to simple housing for the European immigrant and working class families that flowed into the Eliot neighborhood during the 1880s to early 1900s. The German American Armbruster family operated a pretzel baking business from the back yard for nearly 30 years.|
|4||Alfred J. and Georgia A. Armstrong House||September 14, 2002
|509 NE Prescott Street
||Built in 1894, this elaborate Queen Anne house is one of very few intact examples of its type remaining from the early years of development in the King neighborhood. It exhibits more defining Queen Anne characteristics than other nearby houses of the same period, including a tower and the large quantity of jigsawed ornamentation.|
|5||Thomas J. Autzen House||March 9, 1992
|2425 NE Alameda Street
||This 1927 house is an outstanding example of the Tudor Revival style in both its exterior and interior, and is one of only two houses in Portland by architect Kirtland Cutter. Thomas J. Autzen (1888–1958) was a prominent businessman in the wood products industry, and a pioneer in the manufacture and marketing of plywood.|
|6||Frank C. Barnes House||September 1, 1983
|3533 NE Klickitat Street
||Businessman Frank C. Barnes (1854–1931), prominent in Portland's grocery and fish processing industries, had this 1914 mansion built as part of a grouping of houses for himself and his wife and children. The house clearly demonstrates the architectural eclecticism of the era, with major elements in the Jacobethan, Colonial Revival, and Neoclassical styles.|
|7||Barnhart–Wright House||June 13, 1997
|1828 NE Knott Street
||This 1914 house was built in Irvington by general contractor Frederic E. Bowman, who shaped several neighborhoods in the city. It stands as one of the best-preserved and most expensive single-family homes in his body of work, and is an outstanding example of the use of Arts and Crafts architecture with Prairie School influences in an upper-class Portland home.|
|8||Bay E, West Ankeny Car Barns||October 10, 1978
|2706 NE Couch Street
||This brick building is the last remnant of the complex of maintenance facilities that supported several major streetcar lines in northeast Portland in the late 19th and early 20th centuries.[a] The complex was opened in 1901 and Bay E was built in 1911, continuing in operation until 1950. It is one of only two structures remaining in Portland from that era's streetcar network.|
|9||Boschke–Boyd House||February 25, 2005
|2211 NE Thompson Street
||This c. 1910 house is most noted for its association with William E. Boyd (1880–1965), the co-owner and manager of the Benson Hotel for 36 years, during which time it flourished as one of Portland's premier hotels. Boyd lived in the house for 28 years from 1922 to 1950. It has a fine design in the Tudor and Jacobethan styles by Joseph Jacobberger.|
|10||George W. and Hetty A. Bowers House||September 23, 2011
|114 NE 22nd Avenue
||The finest of only three poured-concrete houses in Portland, this 1910 residence was built at the height of the short-lived national trend of experimentation with this building method. Although the method largely died out soon after and especially never gained popularity in Portland, this house was at the cutting edge in its time.|
|11||F. E. Bowman Apartments||June 16, 1989
|1624–1636 NE Tillamook Street
||Constructed in 1913, this is one of the oldest apartment buildings in the Irvington neighborhood, and the best preserved from its era. Through its Craftsman styling, builder Frederic E. Bowman gave attention to blending the building into the neighborhood of pre-existing single-family homes.|
|12||John and Ellen Bowman House||January 9, 2008
|1719 NE Knott Street
||This 1916 Colonial Revival house is a prime example of the work of Ellis F. Lawrence (1879–1946), one of Portland's and Oregon's most influential architects. Sited on one of the largest lots in the Irvington neighborhood, it is perhaps Lawrence's grandest residential design. It stands out for fine craftsmanship and materials.|
|13||Jennie Bramhall House||May 27, 1999
|5125 NE Garfield Avenue
||This house is significant for its highly unusual combination of Queen Anne styling with cast concrete block construction. Built in 1908–1909, it is one of the finest remaining Queen Anne houses in the Albina District, and one of only a few cast concrete houses in that area.|
|14||Brick House Beautiful||January 27, 2012
|4005 NE Davis Street
||This model house was built in 1922–1923 to showcase the product line of the Standard Brick & Tile Company, based in Portland. It was also a demonstration project for the brick hollow-wall method of construction, newly introduced in the Portland market to reduce cost and improve affordability of brick houses.|
|15||Burnside Bridge||November 14, 2012
|Spanning the Willamette River at river mile 12.7
||Opened in 1926 as a centerpiece of Portland's transportation system, the Burnside Bridge was embroiled in a public corruption scandal during its development. Part of a three-bridge package funded by a public bond issue, it was one of the final works in bridge engineer Gustav Lindenthal's impressive career.[b] It is one of the country's heaviest bascule bridges, and the earliest to use a concrete deck on the lift span.|
|16||George Earle Chamberlain House||June 19, 1991
|1927 NE Tillamook Street
||George Earle Chamberlain (1854–1928) worked in public service for over 40 years, including as Oregon's 11th state Governor (1903–1909) and as U.S. Senator (1909–1921). He acquired this Colonial Revival house in 1904 and lived there nearly until his death, associating it with the later, most prominent portion of his career.[c] He remodeled the house extensively and his imprint on the house has been preserved.|
|17||Clovelly Garden Apartments||May 19, 1983
|6307–6319 NE Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard
||This 1928 Tudor Revival building is a fine example of the garden apartments popular in Portland in the late 1920s and early 1930s. It was designed by prominent architect Carl L. Linde under commission to George Nease, an influential timber businessman. It contains light fixtures designed by Fred Baker, a master lighting designer in Portland in that period.|

|53 NE Thompson Street
||Built in 1899 by German American carpenter Henry C. Keck, this house illustrates the settlement of Albina by ethnic Europeans. As the presence of African Americans in Albina increased, it was purchased by Mount Olivet Baptist Church in 1929 to be its parsonage. In that role, the house was home to locally prominent civil rights leaders Rev. Jonathan L. Caston and Rev. J. James Clow.|
|42||Edward H. and Bertha R. Keller House||November 20, 2009
|3028 NE Alameda Street

- The Ankeny Car Barns occupied several lots around the intersection of Burnside Street and 28th Avenue. Bay E was part of the western portion of the complex. Seven other barn complexes were located in different parts of Portland.
- The three bridges in the bond-funded package were the Burnside Bridge, Ross Island Bridge, and Sellwood Bridge (which has since been demolished and replaced). Lindenthal was the supervising engineer for the construction of all three bridges. He was responsible for the design of the Ross Island and Sellwood bridges, but for the Burnside Bridge he adapted a design by Ira G. Hedrick and Robert E. Kremers. Hedrick and Kremers were removed from the project due to the corruption scandal.
- The Chamberlain House was originally built in 1893 for Frank M. Warren Sr. (1848–1912), a well-known businessman in the salmon industry who later died aboard the Titanic.
