The Division Street Corral was a famous dance hall built by Charles & Adoline
Ceciliani that opened in December of 1948 at S.E.171st and Division in Portland,
Oregon. Famous entertainers who performed there included: Johnny Cash, Hank
Thompson, Bobby Vinton, Paul Revere & the Raiders, Ray Price, Bobby Vee, The
Ventures, Bobby Darin, and many more.

After a suspected arson fire that destroyed parts of the building, the Cecilianis
renovated and eventually leased the corral to renters, including an evangelist,
bingo group and flea market. It was demolished in late March 2007 and is now
the site of a affordable housing development (shown below).
