With a Walkscore of 90 and located less than 1 mile from Downtown in Portland's trendy east side, the Buckman House is close to everything: Oregon Convention Center, Rose Garden Arena, Memorial Coliseum, OHSU, PSU, OMSI, Lloyd Center shopping, and award winning restaurants and close to Waterfront Park, I-5 & I-84.
