SCHOOL LISTED IN NATIONAL REGISTER

 
The Oregon State Historic Preservation Office recently announced the
listing of the Springdale School in the National Register of Historic
Places.
 
Designed in a modest interpretation of the Art Deco style by Portland
architect Claud Freeman and built in 1931, the Springdale School
replaced an earlier school that served the community of Springdale and
surrounding area. The construction of the school and later additions
subsequent years physically shows how the population of the area grew
during the mid-20th century. The building served as a school for
Springdale District No. 25 and housed grades one through eight from 1931
through the 1950s. In 1960, after Multnomah County voted to consolidate
school districts, the building became an elementary school. It continued
in that capacity until 1996, also serving as a community center and
gathering place for residents in the surrounding area.
 
Oregon’s State Advisory Committee on Historic Preservation recommended
the building’s nomination in June 2011. The Springdale School joins 31
other schools in Oregon listed in the National Register, which is
maintained by the National Park Service under the authority of the
National Historic Preservation Act of 1966.

TECHNICAL PRESERVATION REDESIGNS WEBSITE
 
Technical Preservation Services recently launched an expanded and

preservation tax incentives; publications, including Preservation Briefs
and Tech Notes; guidance on meeting the Standards in rehabilitation
projects; information on the Historic Surplus Property Program and the

much more.
 
The new site features expanded information on Sustainability and

Interior’s Standards for Rehabilitation & Illustrated Guidelines on
Sustainability for Rehabilitating Historic Buildings. Also included are
links to research and studies on energy efficiency and historic
buildings and to sustainability resources for home owners, historic
districts and communities and Federal agencies.
 
Case studies highlighting successful tax incentives projects and
projects that combined historic rehabilitation and green building
practices rotate on the home page and in several sections of the site.
The Federal tax credit forms have also been updated and revised

NATIVE AMERICAN WOMEN SUBJECT OF TALK
 
Gloria Stiger Linkey will give a talk titled, “Native American Women;
Three Who Changed History” at 1 p.m., Nov. 20 in the Netul River Room of
the Fort Clatsop visitor center.  The presentation is part of the “In
Their Footsteps” series.  
 
The Salt Works in Seaside inspired Linkey to research and develop
several presentations about the Lewis and Clark Expedition, and write a
book with the same title as the lecture, which introduces Sacagawea,
Wetxuiss, and Marie Dorion – well-travelled Native American women,
contemporary to each other, and courageously involved in major episodes
of Pacific Northwest history about 200 years ago.
 
Gloria’s book is available at the Lewis & Clark National Park
Association bookstore in the Fort Clatsop visitor center.  There will be
a book-signing at this bookstore following her presentation.
 
For more information, call the park at (503) 861-2471.
