Thursday Doors – Beaverton City

The Thursday Doors is a weekly challenge at Dan Antion’s site No Facility for people who love doors and architecture to come together to admire and share their favorite door photos, drawings, or other images or stories from around the world. If you’d like to join us, simply create your own Thursday Doors post and then share a link to your post in the comments in Dan’s post.

When Hubby and I were house searching after summer in 2022, we wanted to find a home within twenty minutes of drive from my daughter’s house. Beaverton and Tigard cities had larger inventories in the housing market. Friends recommended Beaverton. Eventually, it was the city of my focus.

Even though we’ve moved into our new home for almost four months, other than going to my daughter’s house, I still like to use Google Maps. I’ve saved about thirty locations for our frequent visits.

I did a little “Getting to Know You” about Beaverton City. What I’ve learned is more than what’s included here. I may bring up other information later.

Beaverton is a city in Washington County in the Tualatin Valley, Oregon, U.S. The city is among the main cities that make up the Portland metropolitan area. It is the second-largest city in the county and the seventh largest city in Oregon. Beaverton is an economic center for Washington County. It is home to the world headquarters of Nike, Inc. Incidentally, our previous owner was a Nike employee. He moved because he was relocated.

Beaverton covers a total area of 19.7 square miles (51 km2), all of it land except for small creeks, ponds, and lakes. The city is located along the eastern edge of the Tualatin Valley, just west of the Tualatin Mountain. It is bordered by Portland to the east, Hillsboro to the west, and Tigard to the south. Much of the remaining area surrounding Beaverton in the north and southwest constitutes unincorporated Washington County.

Beaverton City is divided into 13 neighborhoods: Central Beaverton, Denney Whitford, Raleigh West, Five Oaks, Triple Creek, Greenway, Highland, Neighbors Southwest, Sexton Mountain, South Beaverton, Vose, West Beaverton, and West Slope.


Tourist attractions

I’ll tell you some more after I visit these attractions. Several of them are close to my home.

The weather is getting warmer in Portland. In fact, Friday will be 86F, and Saturday will be 80oF.

I took some photos of the doors when I was out and about. There are two sets of doors included. The first set has basically brown doors with different styles.

The second set has colorful doors.

This pink flower tree and its counterpart white flower tree are in bloom right now. I see them everywhere on the road.

  • Miriam, I love Beaverton. I lived there in my early twenties for about a year. Our humble apartment was nothing as elegant as the houses you pictured here. They are gorgeous. I’m glad you found a place you love and can be near to your daughter.


  • What a wonderful bit of history of Beaverton, Miriam and your doors are magnificent. Love the neighborhood and each charming home one different that the other. The colors are exquisite too! 💗


  • Hello Miriam, I wanted to mention that the link for your book Tina Lost in Crowd on this blog (up to the right) is broken.

    Also I bought this book for friends of mine with small children (ours are grown now) and I read it as well, and I think it is a really great book. Very entertaining and masterfully written as well as useful to parents and children. The illustrations are beautiful and very colorful. So I wrote a review on Amazon and today I published a post on my Leonberger blog that is a review of your book. I just wanted you to know in case you want to look at comments.
