Located in a vibrant, diverse, and highly desirable neighborhood, Powell's on Hawthorne now covers more than 10,000 square feet of retail space and offers more than 200,000 used and new books. The atmosphere is relaxed, but the store is big enough to warrant a map. Not as extensive as the labyrinth at the City of Books, Powell's on Hawthorne is divided into just three rooms, each named for a neighborhood landmark: Madison, Hawthorne, and Tabor. The latter is named for Mt. Tabor, Portland's very own extinct volcano.

Comment wall

Hey, I love the store - I have it marked as a favorite - but the description contains a bit of hype. Mt. Tabor is not the "world's only extinct volcano residing within city limits". What about Diamond Head in Honolulu? Or, closer to home, Pilot Butte in Bend?

Then you have the opposite case, where the city resides within the volcano, like Mammoth Lakes, CA; Los Alamos, NM; and Rabaul in Papua New Guinea. Just sayin’…
