PRESERVATION MONTH FAIR SET AT STATE CAPITOL
 
Heritage Programs will host the fifth annual Preservation Month Fair at
State Capitol State Park from 11 a.m. – 1 p.m. on May 30 in Salem.
Community organizations from around the area and several state agencies
will provide information about their efforts to help preserve Oregon’s
history. The event will take place on the north side of Court Street
opposite the Capitol building. The Oregon State Capitol will offer
30-minute tours of the building at noon and 12:30 p.m., including a 121
step climb to see the “Oregon Pioneer,” which stands atop the building,
and a spectacular view of the city and the surrounding area. Those
interested in participating in the Capitol building tour should meet 10
minutes early at the information kiosk on the first floor in the
Capitol.
 
 
NEIGHBORHOODS, TRIBAL LANDS – COMMUNITY PRESERVATION ON EXCHANGE
 
Recently, a group of volunteers committed to community preservation
halted the destruction of three vintage houses in Portland’s Buckman
neighborhood. Cathy Galbraith, Executive Director of the Architectural
Heritage Center ( http://www.visitahc.org/ ), shares their story and the
results of their efforts in Early Lessons from a Neighborhood Historic
District (
http://oregonheritage.wordpress.com/2013/05/21/early-lessons-from-a-neighborhood-historic-district/
). Shalaya Williams, an oral history technical trainee with the
Confederated Tribes of the Umatilla Indian Reservation, describes
finding a balance between tradition laws and adapting to change while
protecting tribal lands in her story, Continuous Evolution (
http://oregonheritage.wordpress.com/2013/05/23/continuous-evolution/ ).
