Sessions devoted to preserving mid-century modern buildings will be
featured at this year’s Oregon Heritage Conference scheduled for May
9-10 in Portland.

These sessions will take place during the afternoon of the second day
of the conference. Topics include gaining appreciation for mid-century
modern buildings and developing tools for local governments for managing
mid-century modern properties. These sessions will be followed on
Saturday with a tour led by the Historic Preservation League of Oregon
of mid-century modern homes designed by Portland architect Saul Zaik.

The conference theme is “Connect Through Stewardship,” and other
sessions will focus on adaptive reuse of historic buildings, heritage
advocacy, community engagement, and collections care and disaster

Attendees will include community leaders, staff and volunteers from
historical societies, museums, archives, historic cemeteries, ethnic
organizations, schools, historic preservation commissions, humanities
groups, Main Street programs, the tourism industry, economic
development, staff from local, state, and federal governments, and
professional historians and preservationists.
