The Law of Dharma or Purpose in Life

– Deepak Chopra

About the Historic Reed House

Built in 1916, this fantastic house was owned by the Reed family. Sitting front and center on Beulah Reed Road. After deeding a sizable land grant which would become part of Oswald West State Park, the Hwy 101 bridge connecting the park to the highway on Neahkahnie mountain is named after the Reed family. Cousins were founding members of Reed College. The family was very involved with work involving the Portland Art Museum and were part of a thriving arts community in the Neahkahnie community.

This house was updated in 2014 to it’s original glory with modern conveniences to take advantage of the stellar location.Enjoy the huge deck spanning the front of the house and along the side of the house covering a full lot. Nestled into the side yard is our own private fire pit to gather round and roast S’mores or quiet conversation around a fire with a glass of your favorite beverage.
