We bring YOU together with hundreds of other people and businesses who believe these places matter and who also support Restore Oregon!

Without your support of Restore Oregon, “Endangered Places” like the Shipley-Cook Barn will struggle to survive. Your donations will help develop and sustain programs, toolkits, and resources for barn owners and enthusiasts to learn about how to maintain and reuse older and historic agricultural buildings. –Rick Cook, Century Farm Owner

[Restore Oregon] has been immensely important in helping Oregon City save our 1844 Francis Ermatinger House. When Restore Oregon placed it on the Most Endangered Places List, many stepped up to offer support. – Doug Neeley, Mayor, Oregon City
