Wicked Portland The Wild & Lusty

In a recent book called “Wicked Portland” written by Finn J.D. John, you will find riveting stories of the life in Portland during the 1870s to 1890s.  

Check out Chapter 4 and read about Nancy Boggs, the famous madam whose floating bordello transported her patrons up and down the Willamette River in the late 1880’s.   

Local legend has it that the Fulton House Bed & Breakfast is the  famous bordello that had been built upon the sawdust barge once owned by Nancy Boggs. 

The Fulton House Bed & Breakfast is now located on land in the area known as John’s Landing and one block from the Willamette River and Willamette Park.
