Preserve, Reuse, and Pass Forward Oregon's Historic Resources...
As March draws to a soggy close, HPLO staff are looking forward to a active April of preservation events around the state. This week we'll be talking about schools with Portland Public Schools, the week after that we'll begin review of the 2012 Most Endangered Places nominations, then it's out to Bend to conduct some preservation trainings, and, finally, we'll be leading a big kick-off to Preservation Month 2012 in Salem on April 28th.
Here's a roundup of what's going on out and about in the state this week:
Astoria. Clatsop Community College has been awarded an Outstanding Achievement in Preservation Education award from the Washington SHPO.
Jacksonville. A new tenant is moving into the city's former jail.
Klamath Falls. The City has purchased several historic Main Street buildings with rehabilitation in mind.
National Registerville. Five additional properties from around the state have been added to the National Register of Historic Places, including the Armory in Cottage Grove.
Portland. The plan to rehabilitate the historic Grove Hotel is on hold, tickets are on sale for the Irvington Home Tour and the HPLO's Mid-Century home tour, the Architectural Heritage Center's spring programs have been announced, a masonic lodge in NoPo may be rehab'd into a hotel, a 1916 commercial building on Division is being adaptively reused and retrofitted as a passive house, there's more news on the Jantzen Beach Carousel, and remember to join the HPLO, Green Building Services,Bassetti Architects, and PPS for a conversation about the rehabilitation of historic schools for continued use on April 5th.
