       The GasCo Building is but a shell of it's former glory 
       sitting along Hwy 30 surrounded by more modest industrial
       buildings. 
       It stands out, it's hard to miss and it's presents is a 
       reminder of Portlands past.
       There is so little time left to save it but it's worth a 
       try.  Find out more by clicking the link.

      "Friends of the GasCo is a multi-generational grassroots preservation group that is seeking alternatives
      to the demolition of the 1913 Portland Gas and Coke Building located in Portland, Oregon.
      The Gas and Coke building or GasCo, was constructed in 1913 by Portland Gas and Coke as part of an coal 
      and oil gasification plant. Today the building is owned by its successor Northwest Natural Gas (NWNG) and
      recently NWNG had planned to demolish the building. The Friends of the GasCo was formed and are currently
      in negotiations with NWNG to preserve the building in place with funds raised by 
      The Friends of Portland GasCo."
