Welcome to the Newto News for March of 2024. My name is Zack Cockfield, and my team and I created Newtomedia as a way for visitors or new residents to get information about a city. Each month we bring together resources that will update you on the history, amenities, culture, future opportunities and all other things inside a city that make it unique. We also hope to be a resource for connecting you with people and businesses that can help you live a better life. If you find our efforts useful, please click on the links to get more information!

Portland, Oregon was founded in 1845 by pioneers who saw the potential of its location along the Willamette and Columbia Rivers. The city quickly grew into a major shipping port, exporting goods such as lumber, wheat, and salmon. In the late 19th century, Portland experienced a population boom due to the Gold Rush and the construction of the transcontinental railroad, becoming one of the largest cities in the Pacific Northwest. During the early 20th century, Portland developed a reputation for its progressive values and commitment to environmental sustainability. The city became a hub for the timber industry and a center for the arts and culture, earning the nickname “The City of Roses” for its abundant rose gardens. Today, Portland is known for its thriving tech industry, vibrant arts scene, and dedication to sustainability. The city continues to attract residents and visitors alike with its picturesque landscapes, diverse culinary scene, and laid-back lifestyle.
