Albina, Oregon

Albina, Oregon

Albina is a historical city which was consolidated into Portland, Oregon in 1891.

Albina was laid out in 1872 with a plat for the new town filed in April 1873 by Edwin Russell, William Page, and George Williams. Albina was named after Mrs. Albina Page, the wife of William Page. Settlement began in 1874 and the "City of Albina" was formally incorporated in 1887. The original dimensions of Albina were modest: from Halsey Street north to Morris Street, and from the Willamette River to Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard (then Margareta Avenue). In 1889, Albina annexed the land north to Killingsworth Street and east to 24th. In 1891, Albina annexed everything north to Columbia Boulevard and west to the Portsmouth area. In July 1891, Portland, East Portland, and Albina were consolidated into one city.
