HERITAGE BARN WORKSHOP SET FOR SEPT 26 AT SHIPLEY-COOK BARN, LAKE OSWEGO

Restore Oregon will hold a Heritage Barn Workshop from 9 a.m. – 4 p.m., Sept. 26 at the Shipley-Cook Barn, 18451 SW Stafford Rd., in Lake Oswego. The Shipley-Cook Barn dates to 1862. It is one of the only 23 remaining Pioneer-era barns still standing in the Willamette Valley. Recently listed as one of Oregon’s Most Endangered Places, rehabilitation on the structure begins this fall as the result of grant funding. Highlighting the rehabilitation-in-progress, the day-long educational program will provide hands-on opportunities for participants to learn about barn styles and types, the basic concepts of barn rehabilitation and the types of tools used to build and restore historic barns. For further information, visit Restore Oregon’s website.
