The Portland Telegram Building is a historic building in Portland, Oregon. It formerly served as the headquarters of The Portland Telegram, a now-defunct local newspaper founded in 1877 by Henry L. Pittock. In 1886, John Addison Porter (Secretary to the President) organized and ran the Oregon Publishing Company, which took over the Telegram. A Republican-leaning newspaper, the Telegram merged in 1931 with the Portland News, creating the Portland News-Telegram, which in turn ceased publishing in 1939. The red brick and terra-cotta structure culminates in a colonial-style clock tower.
