A Company Town — While Alberta and Mississippi are amazing streets, Kenton is an amazing town. Kenton was created in 1909 by Swift & Company to support the meat packing plants and stockyards to the North of us. The Town quickly grew adding many thriving industries and businesses including hotels, apartments, a movie theatre and a trolley line running down Denver and connecting to Portland. Today many of the original buildings of downtown Kenton remain and now house salons, restaurants, pubs and the Kenton Station Restaurant & Pub. It is well into its comeback as a vibrant place to live, work and play. Kenton Commons bridges this downtown and Kenton Park with its Little League, softball, mushball, football and flying Frisbees.
From the balconies of Kenton Commons you can see four mountains and the Columbia River, watch ball games in the Park and gaze over the tree tops and roofs for miles.
Walk across the street to get on the MAX train and head to downtown, the Lloyd center, airport and Clackamas Town Center.
