This year the Historic Preservation League of Oregon turns 35 and they will mark the occasion with a celebration of 35 milestones that have shaped the historic preservation movement here in Oregon. From rehabilitation projects to citizen campaigns, legislation to academic research, Oregon has a rich tradition of supporting historic places in towns large and small.

In addition to recognizing the 35 milestones, special guest Stephanie Toothman, Associate Director of Cultural Resources at the National Park Service, will provide remarks about the current state of preservation nationally, relaying how federal issues are influencing projects here in Oregon.

Finally, the League will use the opportunity to release a special report on Oregon’s Masonry Buildings. Throughout 2012 the League has held Preservation Roundtable sessions across the state as a means of understanding the core challenges and potential policy solutions available for making the state’s historic masonry buildings more resilient, accessible, and economically viable. All attendees will receive a print version of the report and hear how they can become more involved with preserving these valuable buildings in their community.

The event is open to the public; a $10 donation to the League is suggested but not required.
