Preserve, Reuse, and Pass Forward Oregon's Historic Resources...
Astute followers of the Friday Preservation Roundup will know that this week brings not just one, but two blogospheric journeys across Oregon’s preservation landscape. If you missed Monday’s Roundup (I know, I know, we were woefully behind), it was chock-full of National Register nominations, updates on bridge rehabilitations, and news of threatened historic places. Well it’s only been a few days and we’ve got lots more preservation news and events to share with everyone. Take some time out of your busy Friday, sit down over apple cider, and take a gander at some of this week's preservation news from around Oregon.
Astoria. Facebook’s got some great photos of Clatsop Community College’s first fall workshop.
Cascadia. The Seattle DJC talks URMS and quakes.
Corvallis. Don't forget to get your jam on tomorrow night.
Gearhart. The future looks a little brighter for a historic barn that has been the center of some recent political controversy.
Oregon City. Details are still forthcoming, but it sounds like the Ermatinger House (one of Oregon's Most Endangered Places) has received a nice little grant to support its rehab.
Pendleton. Even as community plans to revitalize the historic Rivoli Theater continue to move forward, the property may still face demolition before the year's end according to a local tip we received this week.
Portland. The Burnside Bridgehead redevelopment is rolling along, Governor Pennoyer's old house is up for sale, the Dill Pickle Club wants a social history app, Lone Fir is open again this Halloween, and Dan Haneckow takes us under Southwest 4th on a quest for art.
Salem. Great news for the long-abandoned freight depot adjacent to the capitol city’s Amtrak Station. Also, the Statesman Journal reminds us of preservation in the ‘50s.
Seaside. Who doesn't love the Seaside Promenade?
That’s all for this week. We hope everyone has fun plans for the Halloween weekend, including, but not limited to, dressing up in the following costumes:
