City History

Some of the streets of Northwest Portland are named after 3 people who were very important to the naming of Portland. In 1843, Tennessee drifter William Overton and his friend, Boston lawyer Asa Lovejoy, floating down the Willamette River in a canoe, loved the beautiful mountains and the rich potential of the many trees they saw. Overton without the money to file a land claim, sold half of his 640-acre share to Lovejoy for 25 cents. They began clearing trees, building roads and buildings. Later, Overton decided to move on and sold his half of the share to Francis Pettygrove. Portland got its name when Lovejoy and Pettygrove flipped a coin in 1845. Lovejoy was from Massachusetts and he wanted to name the new settlement Boston. Pettygrove was from Maine and wanted to name the new town Portland. Pettygrove won the coin toss two out of three times and the rest as they say is history. The street of Lovejoy, Overton, and Pettygrove are all part of Northwest Portland.
