"16 Going on 20, 50, 100: Reflecting on the Past, Capitolizing on the Present and Building the Future"
Our Host Community
We hope you join us at Oregon's Capitol, May 4-6 for the 2016 Oregon Heritage Conference! The Salem area is filled with historic buildings and homes, downtown shopping and dining experiences, and surrounded by recreational opportunities, you’ll want to extend your visit beyond the conference to get the most out of what the area offers!
About the Conference
The Oregon Heritage Conference brings together people who love and work with Oregon's heritage. Designed to be interdisciplinary, the conference focuses on all sectors of heritage, such as historic preservation, museums, archives, libraries, and local and state government. By bringing everyone together in one place, we can begin to realize that our work in heritage is all interconnected, that we have similar problems, and, together, can create better solutions.
The Heritage Conference will offer workshops, tours, and breakout sessions that are equal parts innovation and practical advice.
Oregon Heritage Excellence Awards Banquet
