The Painter's Woods Historic District, located in Forest Grove, Oregon, is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.[2] Painter's Woods includes the earliest modern subdivision addition to Forest Grove, and represents Forest Grove's transition from a largely agrarian community to a small-urban center of commerce and education. Subsequent construction reflected the ebbs and flows of development in Forest Grove over time. Primarily residential in character, the district includes well-preserved examples of a broad range of architectural styles in currency between 1880 and 1948.[3] It is adjacent to the Clark Historic District.
