"The nickname Slabtown was first used in the 1880s for the “tenderloin” district just behind the Port of Portland in what is now called Oldtown and stretching westward from the river to today’s Pearl District. This was an area of Sailor’s boardinghouses, saloons and brothels... The nickname Slabtown was first used in the 1880s for the “tenderloin” district just behind the Port of Portland in what is now called Oldtown and stretching westward from the river to today’s Pearl District. Slabtown is literally the name of a neighborhood in NW Portland where the poor residents burned the cast off slabs from the lumber mills -- sometimes they made their homes out of them too" . --JD Chandler
