History

The Donation Land Act, which was passed by congress in 1850, motivated people to travel west by offering large tracts of land. The area that is now Laurelhurst, was made up of two tracts of land, one belonging to Elijah B. Davidson and his wife Saloma, and the other owned by Terrence and Mary Quinn. In 1869, William S. Ladd began buying up land including the two areas that would one day be Laurelhurst. With this land, Ladd developed one of the most impressive stock farms in all of the West, producing purebred Jersey Cattle which helped to lay the foundation for Oregon's livestock industry.. After Ladd’s death in 1893, the land soon transitioned from farming to residential use. In 1909, the Laurelhurst Company purchased most of the land except the 31 acres bought by the city of Portland for Laurelhurst Park.

Laurelhurst celebrated its 100 year birthday in 2009, and has since continued to prosper with over 1500 beautiful homes.
