The Tiny Town Near Portland That’s Absolute Heaven If You Love Antiquing

Started as the Aurora Colony in the late 1850s, this small town just south of Portland was formed as a utopian communal Christian settlement focused on a sustainable and community-oriented life. Over 150 years later, the small town, which was Oregon’s first national historic district, is a thriving center for finding the perfect treasures from the past.
