So this is a little late, but it's been making the rounds some on social media, and maybe you already know about it.
their plot for world domination, the biking and walking propagandists with ODOT and Cherriots have organized an historic walking tour of the Grant neighborhood for this morning.
You may remember that the Grant neighborhood just wrapped up a brochure on housing types and it has a brief bit of history in it.

I'm sure there will be much more.
The walk and talk meets at 10am, today Saturday the 11th, at the North Mall Heritage Park off D Street. (Click on the poster at top for a locator map.)
