Northeast Alberta Street is largely residential until it crosses Northeast 14th Avenue and becomes what is known informally as the Alberta Arts District. Although not considered a neighborhood in its own right, it’s a unique and dynamic area that attracts people from all over the city.
The Alberta Arts District presents itself in earth-tones and motifs quite distinct from other areas and reflects Latino, Asian, and African-American sensibilities. That’s not surprising, given its history as one of the oldest sections of Portland.

The first people to live in Sherwood were the Tualatin Indians. They roamed the area for many years before the first white men came. The first wagon train arrived in Oregon in 1843, and by 1853, Sherwood was being settled by farmers. They built their houses of the logs taken from the forest which once covered the area. They grew nearly everything they needed. Twice a year they took the three day journey into Portland for staples like salt, sugar and syrup.

Bethany is an unincorporated community and census-designated place in Washington County, Oregon, United States. It is situated north of U.S. Route 26 near Beaverton, approximately four miles northwest of Cedar Mill, and is within the Portland metropolitan area.
The name Bethany was first applied to a crossroads trading center about two miles northeast of the current location, where a Presbyterian church stands today. The area was first settled by Ulrich Gerber, who came from Switzerland in the mid-1870s. Gerber helped establish the first post office in the area in 1878, about a mile east of the current Bethany School, and suggested the name Bethany. The post office was discontinued in 1904. The area’s first public library was opened in July 2007 by a non-profit organization named the Cedar Mill Community Library Association, which has operated a library in nearby Cedar Mill since 1976.
