Preserve, Reuse, and Pass Forward Oregon's Historic Resources...
This week, HPLO staff and committee members have been gearing up for the final Preservation Roundtable workshop on historic masonry buildings that will take place the morning of August 16. And since the workshop is in Portland, we're preparing for a conversation that will bring a wide array of experiences and insights to the table. If you haven't RSVP'd, make sure to do so by Tuesday.

It's officially summer. And from our vantage point at the HPLO office, we are certain that Oregon's friends of preservation are combing the state visiting main streets, camping in historic CCC cabins, and road tripping on historic highways. We know it because Saturday Denise will be in Eugene scouting homes for our soon-to-be announced Harvest Home Tour (hint, hint, it'll be October 13th); Sunday I'll be riding the Banks-Vernonia bike trail looking at railroad trestles and a few older farm…Continue
