About the NNCC

The Northwest Neighborhood Cultural Center or “NNCC” is a National Historic Register property located at 1819 NW Everett in Portland, Oregon. This location lies within the Alphabet Historic District.

The building was constructed as a Christian Science Church and opened in 1911. It is one of several Christian Science churches of similar design by architect Solon S. Beman. Today, the building has significant repair and reinvestment needs.

The building is owned by a neighborhood-based, Oregon not-for-profit corporation whose name is also the Northwest Neighborhood Cultural Center.  In the late 1970s, the NNCC acquired the property from the Christian Science church. The NNCC has continuously owned the property since that time. Today, the building is for sale. Click here to learn more about the sale.
