2018 Oregon’s Most Endangered Places Nomination
Each year, historic properties across Oregon are rehabilitated and reused, enriching our lives, revitalizing Main Streets, and attracting visitors. Unfortunately, there are also scores of historic properties in imminent danger of being lost to hard times, development pressures, demolition, or neglect. These unique places tell the story of their community’s heritage, values, industry, and culture.
Restore Oregon wants to help preserve and pass forward these irreplaceable assets by focusing public attention and resources on them. Properties selected for the 2018 Most Endangered Places list will receive technical assistance to address immediate threats, provide educational resources to the local community, and develop strategies for their long-term viability and preservation.
To nominate a Most Endangered Place, please fill out the application.
All materials must be received by 5:00pm on July 10, 2017, to be considered for listing. Full details and instructions can be found on the application. If you have any questions, please contact Dan Everhart at Dan@RestoreOregon.org or by phone at (503) 946-6379.
