The Neighbors of Woodcraft Building, also known as the Tiffany Center, is a building located in southwest Portland, Oregon, listed on the National Register of Historic Places.[3] Construction of the building was commissioned by the Neighbors of Woodcraft (NOW), a non-profit fraternal benefit society based in Oregon since 1905 and operating in several western states,[4][5] for use as a national headquarters and clubhouse.[6] The building was completed in May 1929 and dedicated in June. In 1993, NOW sold the building and moved out of its remaining office space there.[6] The building was added to the National Register in February 1996.[3]
