Location of Multnomah County in Oregon

The following list presents the full set of National Register of Historic Places listings in Multnomah County, Oregon. However, please see separate articles (links below) for listings in each of Portland's five quadrants.

The National Register of Historic Places (NRHP) recognizes buildings, structures, objects, sites, and districts of national, state, or local historic significance across the United States.[1] Out of over 88,000 NRHP sites nationwide,[2] Oregon is home to approximately 1,950,[3] and over one-fourth of those are found in Multnomah County. In turn, the large majority (over 90%) of the county's NRHP sites are situated within Portland.

This list includes only NRHP sites within Multnomah County but outside the municipal boundaries of Portland. While some sites appear in this list (and corresponding lists for neighboring counties) showing "Portland" as a general locality, they are nevertheless beyond city limits.

This National Park Service list is complete through NPS recent listings posted December 24, 2014.[4]

Sauvie Island The archeological remains of this Chinookan village are unusually well preserved. This cosmopolitan people's complex hunter-gatherer economy and extensive trade network allowed them to establish one of the highest population densities in aboriginal North America, yet they left very few physical remains. The site has been subject to erosion and looting, problems which have been ameliorated by a protective layer of riprap.[19][20]
