The Architectural Heritage Center (AHC) will offer several educational programs and tours in February, March and April.

A lecture titled “The Architects and Architecture of Portland’s Fraternal Lodges and Secret Societies” will take place from 7 – 8:30 p.m., March 10 and 12, that will cover current and former buildings associated with organizations like the Masons, Odd Fellows, Woodmen of the World, and a variety of women’s and immigrant groups.

A few weeks after the above lecture, take a bicycle tour through Northeast and Southeast Portland to see several some historic fraternal lodge buildings. As you pedal, you’ll learn more about the buildings’ architecture and the architects who designed them, while getting a better sense of how these buildings played an important role in the development of their neighborhoods.

Guest curator Morgen Young will present, “Strength, Utility, and Beauty: Architectural Metals in the Gilded Age and Beyond” in conjunction with an exhibit of the same name from 7 – 8:30 p.m., March 31 and 10 – 11:30 a.m., April 4. The lecture and exhibit examine 1850s, architects and builders in Portland who employed architectural elements made from a variety of metals from the “Grand Era” of cast-iron architecture well into the 20th century.

Grant funding from Oregon Heritage helped make the above programs possible. For further information, visit the AHC website<http://www.visitahc.org/content/winter-2015-education-programs>.
