Restore Oregon

Preserve, Reuse, and Pass Forward Oregonís Historic Resources to Ensure Livable, Sustainable Communities. Restore Oregon was founded in 1977 as the Historic Preservation League of Oregon. As the organization has evolved over the years, weíve always focused on taking care of the places that make Oregon, OREGON: the historic homes and neighborhoods, bridges and barns, churches and Main Streets that make this place so authentic and livable. Historic places are cultural, environmental, and economic assets, and they need active stewardship or they will be lost to future generations. Our efforts to save Oregonís Most Endangered Places are preserving historic structures from the Ermatinger House in Oregon City to the Egyptian Theater in Coos Bay. Our Preservation Roundtable engages hundreds of people each year, including developers, planners, government agencies, and property owners to revitalize Oregonís historic Main Streets. Now weíre tackling the number one reason historic buildings are lost in Oregon: insufficient economic incentives.
