In Search of Portland

Ladd Carriage House

Ladd Carriage House

Situated prominently on Broadway, the Ladd Carriage House is an anachronism standing next to two glass towers: a 19th century outbuilding that was once part of founding father William Ladd's mansion. Today home to the Raven & Rose restaurant, the Carriage House was nearly demolished just over a decade ago by the church that owned it — until a grassroots effort found a better way. In this episode, we talk with Friends of Ladd Carriage House founder and architect Paul Falsetto about the building's unique charms, and with interior designer Tracy Simpson about building perhaps the city's coziest dining spot, with hopes for its swift post-pandemic return.
