Multnomah Village Real Estate and Homes for Sale
Every home for sale in Multnomah Village is listed here. Most real estate websites rely on the neighborhood/area description entered into the MLS by the listing Realtor, which is often incorrect. My Multnomah Village Real Estate website relies on official neighborhood boundaries. If a home is for sale in Multnomah Village, it’s here, if it’s not in Multnomah Village, it’s listed under it’s own neighborhood. Adjacent neighborhoods are Ashcreek, Crestwood, Hayhurst, Hillsdale, Maplewood, Markham, South Burlingame, and West Portland Park.

Long time residents refer to the Multnomah neighborhood as simply “Multnomah,” the “village” appendix was added by the neighborhood business association for marketing purposes.
The Multnomah neighborhood began as a land claim of Thomas and Polly-Anne Tice, and through the 1800′s the area remained a densely wooded area, unnamed and home to only a few residents. The community of Multnomah developed in the 1910s around a depot of the Oregon Electric Railway of the same name. In 1910, H. L. Gilbert consolidated the majority of the current business district (including the existing Home Addition) into the Wildwood Subdivision. At this point, the site was bounded by the same physical streets, but their names were: Fulton Boulevard, Farewell Street and Gordon Avenue. The neighborhood continued to grow and was eventually annexed to Portland over an 8-year period beginning in 1954.
A bit of Portland history played out in the Multnomah on April 7, 1987, when Mayor Bud Clark fired Police Chief Jim Davis while the two were having a breakfast meeting at the Fat City Cafe.
Quaint. Charming. A bit off-center and quintessentially Portland. Call it what you will, Multnomah is filled with character – as well as dozens of unique shops, galleries, restaurants, a wine bar and a brewpub, professional services, and the rambling Multnomah Arts Center.
Annual events include the Multnomah Days Parade and ensuing street fair on the 3rd Saturday in August, an afternoon Halloween in the Village and the Holiday Gala on the First Friday and Saturday of December. Parking is available on the street as well as at the Multnomah Arts Center. TriMet buses 44 and 45 serve the community, and the area is easily accessed by bicycle.
