Visitor Tips and News About "Retail" Birthplace of U-Haul
Next time in Portland, Oregon don't miss...the (Retail) Birthplace of U-Haul. At SE 88th and Foster. There is a U-Haul outlet still there. There's a shiny new sign, easy to read, stating "Retail Birthplace - UHaul - Historical Marker" A good place to stop and think, and more satisfying than "where the airplane restaurant used to be before it flew away," or "where the Spruce Goose is inside that shed over there."[Dan McDonald, 05/11/1997]
June 2005: The actual "Birthplace of U-Haul" is in Ridgefield, Washington, and is marked as such with a sign.
