The Shriners Hospital for Crippled Children, also known as Old Shriners Children's Hospital, was a historic building in Portland, Oregon, United States, built in 1923.[2] It was designed in Colonial Revival style with aspects of the Georgian Revival style subtype. It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1989,[1] and removed on 2011, after being deconstructed in 2004.[3] The hospital moved to Marquam Hill in 1983, and the old site remained vacant until 2005 when it was demolished and an affordable living apartment complex, Columbia Knoll, was built on the site.[4]
