Walking Around Portland – Ladd’s Addition

Ladd’s Addition is definitely one of SE Portland’s unique and interesting neighborhoods. The streets run diagonally and weave around four rose gardens and a large circle at the center of the neighborhood.  Most of the houses are Craftsman style Foursquares and bungalows, with some mid century ranch style homes and cottages mixed in.
