Christine Curran, with nearly a quarter-century of experience in historic preservation, has been named Oregon's new deputy state historic preservation officer.

"We are all very excited to have Chrissy on board as the deputy state historic preservation officer," said Lisa Sumption, the state's historic preservation officer and director of the Oregon Parks and Recreation Department. "Chrissy was chosen based on her experience of higher-level management of multi-disciplined programs and her vision for the State Historic Preservation Office and Oregon Parks and Recreation Department programs. We look forward to the great work she will continue to do."

Curran joined the Oregon preservation office 16 years ago and has worked as National Register coordinator, federal and state compliance coordinator, and as associate deputy state historic preservation officer. She has been the acting deputy state historic preservation officer for the past six months.

A native Oregonian, Curran received her undergraduate degree from Lewis and Clark College, and her master of science from the University of Oregon's historic preservation program. She worked for Oregon Department of Transportation and consulting firms in Oregon, Arizona, and Minnesota before landing at the State Historic Preservation Office in 1999.

In her new role, Curran will be responsible for the State Historic Preservation Office and the other state heritage programs located within the Heritage Division of Oregon Parks and Recreation Department, including the Oregon Heritage Commission, the Oregon Main Street Program, the Oregon Commission on Historic Cemeteries, and others.
