Buckman Neighborhood – Your New Home
The Lindley Team at Mortgage Express | 503.517.8641
The Buckman neighborhood is located in Southeast Portland. It is bordered by the Willamette River, Kerns, Sunnyside, and Hosford-Abernathy neighborhoods. The popular Hawthorne District along Hawthorne Boulevard is also located partially in Buckman along the southern boundary. The northern boundary along Burnside Street is home to the adjoining Kerns neighorhood. Buckman-Kerns is a popular area for dining in East Portland.
For bike riders, it’s an easy commute to the city with a dedicated bike route. In fact, you will find that many commuters on any given day rain or shine. The Buckman Historic Association is very active in the community and currently they are applying to have a portion of the neighborhood from Southeast 12th Avenue and 20th Avenue and Morrison and Ankeny Streets listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
Buckman’s Hawthorne District is one of the most unique, and most popular areas in Southeast Portland. The area is known for its wonderful restored old Portland homes, liberal residents, and fun and funky feel. The street is lined with unique restaurants and shops, and has a definite Portland-local flair.
Buckman is an urban area that is located very close in on the East side of the river, and surrounded by several other popular Portland neighborhoods. If you like urban living and easy access to bars, restaurants, shops and a short commute to Downtown, Buckman might be your neighborhood. From traditional old East Portland style homes and classic old apartment buildings, to funky and fun infill housing; the Buckman character is evident nearly everywhere you look.
