July 5, 2019

Oregon Heritage, a division of Oregon Parks and Recreation Department, awarded 18 grants totaling $303,867 for historic properties and archaeology projects. Six of the grants were awarded in the Diamonds in the Rough category. This grant funds façade enhancements that restore the historic character of the property. The other 12 grants were in the Preserving Oregon category for properties listed on the National Register of Historic Places and for archaeology projects.

Funded projects:

  • Façade restoration grants in Astoria, Harrisburg, Klamath Falls, Lebanon, Portland, and Sheridan.
  • An archaeology project of Southern Oregon University in Ashland.
  • Preservation of nine historic properties in Astoria, Benton County, Eagle Point, Grand Ronde, Gresham, Lane County, Polk County, Portland, Scappoose, Warrenton, and Weston.

These grants are approved by the State Advisory Committee on Historic Preservation, a nine-member group that reviews nominations to the National Register of Historic Places. The members are professionally recognized in the fields of history, architecture, archaeology and other related disciplines.
