The White Eagle Saloon in Portland, Oregon

#1

Hand carved sign created in the '70s over the door of the (rumored to be haunted) century old bar.

". . . It’s been there since 1906; since that time, the city around it has changed radically, and its neighborhood has become a sort of triangle-shaped island of 10 blocks or so, bordered on one side by Interstate 405, another by I-5 and the third by the Willamette River.

The pub was founded by a pair of Polish immigrants and for many years it functioned as a sort of headquarters for the east Portland waterfront’s Polish community — in fact, the “White Eagle” refers to the bird you’ll find on the Polish flag of the period."
