Oregon’s Most Endangered Places

Saving Oregon’s Endangered Places

From Oregon Trail pioneer homesteads to the former home of a Black suffragist, these unique places tell the story of who we are.

Nominated by people across the state, our annual list of Oregon’s Most Endangered Places spotlights their value as cultural and economic assets. We then bring together rehabilitation expertise, resources, and local support to revitalize these properties so they can again contribute to their communities and be passed forward to future generations.

Since 2011, over $58,000 in Restore Oregon seed grants have been awarded for preservation plans, National Register nominations, and physical restoration projects.
