The Beaumont Wilshire Neighborhood was originally two separate neighborhoods, separated by NE Fremont. Each neighborhood agreed to come together as one because of their common concerns and interests. The average home was built in 1943, and the population was 5,930 as of 2016.
Both neighborhoods have their origins dating back to the early 1900’s. The Beaumont side of the neighborhood encompasses part of the Alameda Ridge, where residents have spectacular views of the Willamette Valley and downtown Portland. The center of the neighborhood, known as “Beaumont Village,” is a mix of commercial, housing, and retail services.
The majority of homes in the Beaumont-Wilshire neighborhood are English Tudor, with a mix of some newer homes. Surrounding neighborhoods include Alameda, Grant Park, and Concordia.

Beaumont Village is a popular destination in the neighborhood for dining, shopping, and socializing. The Beaumont Village Market is a family-owned local grocery store that offers not only groceries, but gifts and greeting cards as well. Whole Foods, Noho’s Hawaiian Café, Amalfi’s Italian, and Black Bird Wine Shop—in addition to other locations—round out the dining and food options at the Village. In addition, there are multiple shops for a variety of products, including PaperJam Press, Shop Adorn, and Beaumont Hardware—all located at the Village.
Each summer, the neighborhood also plays host to Fremont Fest. Fremont Fest includes a parade for children and pets, followed by a pub crawl and offerings from local vendors displayed on the street as people walk by. Fremont Fest is a community affair, with something for every member of the family.
