Pioneer Courthhouse Square, Portland's "living room," is where people go to see and be seen and just hang out.
Located on the east side of the square is a
whimsical directional signpost with distances shown to nine
sister-cities and other geographical destinations--both near and far.
The marker is easy to understand as it should be. The furthest distance
on the direction sign is Crozet Basin 12,419 Mi.
There are two signs pointing to Crozet Basin, pointing in opposite directions, since Crozet Basin is exactly halfway around the world from Portland.
