Vaughn Street Ball Park - Portland, OR
The text reads:
Here, before you,
stood the Vaughn Street Ball Park. Home plate and the main gates were
at the northwest corner of 24th and Vaughn. Left field was near the northeast
corner of 25th and Vaughn. The Ball Park's wooden frame became a terrible
fire hazard, leading to its demolition in 1956. Throughout its life, the
Park hosted over a half century of memories and thousands of games for
the baseball fans of Portland. The Vaughn Street Ball Park was built in
1901 by F.I. Fuller and C.F. Swigert, both owners of local streetcar companies.
Note: Civic Stadium is now called PGE Park.
