Real Estate Agent with Inactive

A prospective buyer from California recently asked: "What kind of town is Port Orford?"  I spoke about the natural beauty of the area then explained that in my opinion the people in Port Orford are its greatest strength. I shared with him my own experience about how open and accepting the community was when my wife and I arrived back in 2005 and how supportive our new friends and neighbors were when my wife needed major surgery to restore her to good health. Then I shared my sense of our community's spirit and our community's sense of place, He decided he needed to experience Port Orford first hand and is scheduling a visit in the next few weeks.

After our conversation I reflected on Port Orford and came up with the following list of strengths which I have discussed individually in previous blogs. Port Orford is:

  • Unpretentious small town atmosphere with a strong sense of community
  • Natural beauty of ocean, beaches, coastal forests, rivers & deep water ocean port
  • Recreational activities - fishing, birding, surfing, scuba diving, kayaking, horseback riding, hiking, & photograpy
  • Galleries that promote local artists, craftsman, & writers
  • Theatre 101 at the Seaside Plaza for plays, musicals, bands, & musicians
  • Savoy movie theater for first run movies and an occassional oldie but goodie
  • Locally owned businesses - no fast food restaurants or chain stores
  • State and City Parks including one with an arena for giving your horse a workout.
  • State and Private campgrounds & RV Parks including a State campground on the beach for horseback riding
  • Sense of history - geological, biological, and cultural - indigenous & immigrant
  • Sense of our heritage - tribal, pioneer, mining, timber, & fishing
  • Sense of time - slower coastal pace, seasonal changes, & migratory movements of whales & birds
  • Active/engaged retirees with talents & financial assets
