“BLACK PIONEERS IN EARLY OREGON” SUBJECT OF TALK IN BEND
 
Gwen Carr will reveal the largely undocumented history of African
Americans in Oregon beginning at 6 p.m., March 6, at the High Desert
Museum in Bend. In “Black Impact: Perseverance – Black Pioneers in Early
Oregon”, Garr will discuss the period from 1788 through the early 1900s
when, amid black exclusion laws and anti-black sentiment, these pioneers
persevered and thrived, becoming one of the many diverse groups that
make up Oregon as we know it today. For reservations, email
aarbow at highdesertmuseum.org or call (541) 382-4754. For further

Historic Preservation League of Oregon (HPLO) to address immediate

PRESERVATION ROUNDTABLES DATES SET AROUND OREGON
 
“Charting a Future for Oregon's Historic Masonry Buildings: Resilience,
Access, and Economics” is the topic for this year’s series of
Preservation Roundtables beginning in Jacksonville on March 16 from 10
a.m. – 2 p.m.  
 
The Roundtables will provide a forum for gathering input on solutions
for the brick, stone, tile, and concrete block buildings that define
many of Oregon’s historic districts, Main Streets, schools, and
government buildings. Oregon has several thousand such buildings in need
of rehabilitation and retrofitting and the 2012 Roundtable will take a
look at their history, economic value, best practices for reuse, and
develop policy recommendations needed to pass them forward for future
generations. 
 
Additional Roundtable sessions will take place in Astoria in May,
Pendleton in June and a wrap up will occur during July in Portland. 
Visit www.historicpreservationleague.org/roundTable.php to learn more
about location details and session times, and to register, or contact
Peggy Moretti at (503) 243-1923.
