Two of the viaduct columns decorated by Mr. Stefopoulos were preserved and moved a few blocks south. They can be seen in a small courtyard on the east side of NW 10th Avenue, just south of Flanders St.

Another hint of the railroad heritage of the Pearl District can be found at the corner of NW Hoyt St. and 12th Avenue:

The old SP&S freight terminal buildings on either side of NW 11th at Hoyt still stand; they have been converted to townhouses.

Named for Captain John Couch, one of the founders of Portland.
