West Haven-Sylvan History
This Portland neighborhood got its start back in 1850 when Nathan B Jones settled at the head of Tanner Creek and plotted out lots for the community he originally called Zion Town, probably named after Mount Zion, a summit located about a mile to the southeast. However, because there was already a Zion post office, a resident suggested the name Sylvan from the Roman deity. The post office was established in 1890 but closed in 1906 and today, this community remains a census-designated place in both Washington and Multnomah counties and is one of the premier Northwest Portland neighborhoods.
The largest landmark is the Providence St. Vincent Medical Center offering several clinics, campuses, and medical facilities as well as easy access onto the sunset highway running east and west into downtown Portland.
At the northeast corner of the community is a QFC, Pet Hospital, pizza and cafés, and several other services and amenities at the Barnes Miller Village shopping mall.
