This list presents the full set of buildings, structures, objects, sites, or districts designated on the National Register of Historic Places in North Portland, Oregon, and offers brief descriptive information about each of them. The National Register recognizes places of national, state, or local historic significance across the United States.[1] Out of over 90,000 National Register sites nationwide,[2] Oregon is home to over 2,000,[3] and over one-fourth of those are found partially or wholly in Portland. While these sites are widely spread across all five of Portland's quadrants, heavy concentrations are found in the Downtown and Southwest Hills neighborhoods of the Southwest quadrant, and the Northwest District neighborhood of the Northwest quadrant.

Only historic places within the municipal boundaries of Portland are shown in this list and its companion lists for the other four quadrants. Some sites beyond city limits will appear in other lists showing "Portland" as a general locality, but are excluded here. Although Portland's legal boundaries extend into Clackamas and Washington counties, all of the city's National Register sites lie within Multnomah County.

This National Park Service list is complete through NPS recent listings posted April 21, 2017.[4]

This is the largest example of a Rall-type bascule bridge ever constructed, and one of only three such designs still extant in the United States. Completed in 1913, it was an important step in the development of Portland's transportation system, as the city's first Willamette River bridge built on an entirely new alignment in the 20th century.[7]

This 31-foot (9.4 m) sculpture of folkloric logger Paul Bunyan in Portland's Kenton neighborhood was built in 1959 to commemorate the centennial of Oregon's statehood during the Centennial Exposition and International Trade Fair. Its steel skeleton and detailed, painted-plaster sheathing were crafted by local companies and tradesmen, and it was prominently placed on Interstate Avenue at what was then the main northern gateway to Portland. Reflecting Oregon's tradition of rugged individualism and identification with the timber industry, the statue is an outstanding example of 20th-century, novelty roadside architecture.[8][9]

One of a series of speculative houses by native Oregon architect and conservationist John Yeon following the critically acclaimed Watzek House (1937). The series included nine houses built between 1938 and 1940 in Lake Oswego and Portland. The houses used a modular design concept that pioneered the use of external plywood as a building material and separate ventilation louvers, which allowed for series of fixed pane glass to be inset between vertical mullions. Yeon is frequently cited as one of the originators of what became known as the Northwest Regional style of architecture.[citation needed]
