Another panoramio photo of the building says Portland Gas & Coke Company, GasCo building, built in 1913. I wonder when it was abandoned?
Wow, John6668... you sure get around !
I think this is a cool building, I am surprised that it is not a McMennamins yet !
IlonaLaRue -- Aweome idea :D Hahha! Cool! I hadn't thought of that! And I'm actually fairly familiar with the McMenamins company.
ragemachoo, this building would have soo much potential, I am not sure who owns it and what's inside, but it is heavily guarded with armed men. The only way to take photos if you have a 'get-away' driver, snap the photo and floor the gas. I guess it just adds to the mistery of it all.
I googled gasco building and came up with this website http://gascobuilding.blogspot.com/ . The article appeared to have alot of research and appeared to be authentic.
Sorry to take the mystery away.
Nothing to worry about 4runindingo! I have seen some of the articles about the building also, I know it has a history. I guess you have to be there on person to see how eery it is - specially at night. Drop by some day, i give you the tour! : )
