One of the buildings I love in Lake Oswego is the Oswego Hunt Barn located at 2725 Iron Mountain Boulevard. Built between 1936 and 1938, the Hunt Club is listed on both the National Register of Historic places and is a Lake Oswego Landmark. It is a symbol of the time when Lake Oswego
transitioned from a mining town to the town we know today, in which the motto “Live where you play” still aptly applies.
The Hunt Club maintains its significance because of its status as “the largest and most intact example of a historic sports facility of its type in the Portland metropolitan area” (Oregon Inventory of Historic Properties, Historic Resources Survey Form 12/2002). In addition, it represents one of the few polo clubs in the western United States. The indoor riding arena measures 240 feet by 106 feet and is constructed with bowstring arch trusses which create its beautiful barrel roof, one of my favorite features of the building.
