Long Description:
The original cast-iron colonnade of the North Wing of the New Market Block was constructed in 1872. In 1956, the North Wing was demolished during the urban renewal craze. These columns were salvaged from the demolition and have been restored to their original condition.

The New Market Block housed the unlikely combination of a plus 1,200-seat entertainment palace featuring the country's leading performers (upstairs) and an elaborate produce market (downstairs). Portland has the largest collection of cast-iron building facades outside of New York City's Soho.
