Gresham Oregon, a once quaint farming community now turned vibrant urban center, has become the fourth largest city in Oregon. Named after its 1884 Postmaster General Walter Q. Gresham, this friendly community, officially incorporated in 1905, once served as a resting spot for early pioneers migrating to Portland and, at one time, was simply known as Campground because of its heavily forested environment.
Situated among the surrounding neighborhoods of Fairview, Troutdale, Boring and Sandy, Gresham’s diversity-embracing atmosphere attracts young professionals and families alike. Its hard working residents actively participate in community events that support local businesses and schools. With home-styles that range from modern sprawling estates to modest single family homes, and architectural styles that include single and split level, bungalow, ranch, townhomes and new construction condos, Gresham real estate has a median sale price of $304,000.
The tree lined streets and lush flower baskets hanging from quaint lampposts provide the charm of a small town within an energetic city. Known as an extremely friendly community that provides residents a comfortable quality of life, Gresham’s picturesque, historic downtown delivers a delightful combination of local shops, restaurants, and businesses. With over 50 national stores, boutiques and restaurants, Gresham Station is a marvelous place to spend the day – especially during its Third Thursday event that entertains locals and provides an opportunity for patrons to indulge in great food, wine and music.
Additionally, Gresham is brimming with plenty of year-round outdoor and recreational activities. Right in its own backyard, and located less than an hour away, is Mt. Hood. Famous for its skiing and snowboarding, this natural wonder also provides cross-country skiing, snowmobiling, snowshoeing and inner-tubing opportunities. And, on top of all this, in the warmer seasons, dozens of campgrounds are only a short drive away, and range from tent-only to full-service sites with boat launches and equestrian facilities.
Gresham, located in the Gresham-Barlow School District, with its wide variety of home choices that are sure to fit the needs and tastes of nearly anyone, its wonderful amenities and excellent options for shopping, dining and recreation, is a must-consider destination for homebuyers.
