We preserve & protect:

  • Historic homes
  • Neighborhoods

  • Churches
  • Significant landscapes
  • Heritage barns

  • Main Streets and so much more!

We encourage:

  • Reuse of old buildings
  • Historic rehabilitation projects
  • Compatible infill development across Oregon

Preservation is everyone’s responsibility!

Your membership helps us to do all of this through:

  • Active Historic Preservation: Your membership helps us to give technical support to historic property owners, provide seed grants for our Most Endangered Places program, and helps support our Historic Conservation Easement program.
  • Public Outreach Education: As a member, you help us connect people with Oregon’s history and special places, enlighten them about preservation sustainability, and empower them to accomplish it.
  • Statewide Legislative Advocacy: Restore Oregon keeps you up-to-date on statewide preservation and advocates for policies that ensure our historic places are protected through financial incentives, flexible regulations, appropriate standards, and sustainable land use.
  • Opportunities to Connect: Through our signature events, including Home Tours, the Restoration Celebration, Heritage Barn Workshop, and Preservation Round Table, we keep Oregonians connected to the places that matter to them most.

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
