National Register of Historic Places: Holman Gardens.

Holman Gardens, at 6309 NE MLK, is one of  two places on the Boulevard that have been listed on the National Register of Historic Places:

Holman Gardens, designed by architect Carl Linde, was constructed in 1928 as an apartment building and is now a condominium building called Clovelly Garden Apartments. This name change contributes to some confusion, as seen on this website that talks about Carl Linde and some of his Portland designs.

According to wiki, “The National Register of Historic Places (NRHP) is the United States government’s official list of districts, sites, buildings, structures, and objects deemed worthy of preservation. Having a property on the NRHP makes its owners eligible for tax incentives for expenses incurred preserving the property if they are offered by the local taxing districts.”

The info plaque on the left that’s on the front of the building is almost completely faded.

  1. I drive by this place often on MLK Blvd and continue to admire it and recall about what a beautiful place it was to live in…so long ago….each unit even had their own basements.
