From Portland Afoot
Ladd's Addition is a neighborhood of mostly single-family homes in inner Southeast Portland bounded by 12th Avenue, 20th Avenue, Hawthorne Boulevard and Division Street. Its developer, the 19th Century Portland Mayor William Ladd, was also the developer of the Laurelhurst neighborhood. Among its remarkable characteristics are a range of different home sizes and low-traffic streets created by a diagonal grid and traffic diverters at key intersections.
Ladd's is Portland's oldest planned residential development, and one of the oldest in the western United States. It's part of the Hosford-Abernethy neighborhood.
