Our Town: Bend

Many Oregonians are familiar with Bend, whether it’s because of the biking, the beer or the real estate bubble that brought the economy to a halt.

That infamous bubble led many to christen Bend as a place to live in “poverty with a view.” Bend saw the largest drop in house prices in the country, and the trend of Californians buying second homes in the region disappeared.

View the slideshow above to meet some of the people who have made Bend their home.
