The Swetland Building is a building located in downtown Portland, Oregon, listed on the National Register of Historic Places.[2]

Camera World was headquartered in the building from 1977 until the late 1990s,[3] with its retail store occupying the ground floor at SW 5th & Washington until 1995—when it moved to the 400 SW Sixth Avenue building, a block away—and its administrative offices and mail-order operations on other floors, until at least 1997.
