Did you know:

  • Oregon has over 11,000 barns that were built before 1960?
  • That tax credits are available for the rehabilitation of old barns?
  • That there are contractors that specialize in barn restoration?

These are just a few of the topics that were covered at the 2015 Heritage Barn Workshop!

2015’s day-long workshop  featured speakers, a tour of restored barns, hands-on training, and sessions on barn construction and rehabilitation. Barn owners, historic preservationists, and the general public were invited, with no previous knowledge needed to have a good time. Snacks, beverages, and lunch were included in the registration fee.

The workshop was held at the 1862 Shipley-Cook Barn, one of only 23 remaining Pioneer-era barns still standing in the Willamette Valley. Although the barn was recently listed as one of Oregon’s Most Endangered Places due to significant structural deterioration, the barn will be undergoing rehabilitation this fall thanks to the awarding of $35,500 in rehabilitation grants. The in-progress work was showcased on September 26 to engage participants with the historic rehabilitation process.

Additional Information: Participants are asked to wear closed-toe shoes, sign a liability waiver, and inform Restore Oregon staff if they will be arriving late due to travel arrangements. A limited number of scholarships are available upon request to those experiencing financial hardship.

The annual workshop is organized by members of the Heritage Barn Taskforce

Lower admission prices in 2015 thanks to City of Lake Oswego and generous support from the State Historic Preservation Office.
