HERITAGE COMMISSION MARKS 20 YEARS OF EFFORT

This week is the 20th anniversary of the first meeting of the Oregon Heritage Commission.  Established by the Oregon Legislature in 1995, the Commission was given a to-do list created by a legislative task force in 1994. Since then, it has expanded to nearly 20 programs, including grants, training and marketing. This week's Oregon Heritage Exchange blog<https://oregonheritage.wordpress.com/> includes highlights from the Commission's history.

Among the Heritage Commission's programs is this Oregon Heritage News listserv.


CENTURY FARM, RANCH APPLICATIONS AVAILABLE

The 2016 version of the applications to have farms and ranches at least 100 years old to be designated as Oregon Century Farms or Ranches is available. The Oregon Century Farm & Century Ranch Program<http://oregonfb.org/centuryfarm/> is a statewide recognition program honoring farmers and ranchers whose families  have worked the same land for at least 100 years. The program is administered through the Oregon Farm Bureau Foundation for Education.

Since the start of the program in 1958, 1,175 farms and ranches across the state have been registered. In addition, more than 25 farms and ranches have received a Sesquicentennial designation because they have operated for more than 150 consecutive years.


DIGITIZED OREGON IMAGES POSTED BY LIBRARY

The New York Public Library has released some 180,000 out-of-copyright items from its Digital Collections <http://digitalcollections.nypl.org/> as high resolution downloads. Among the items are hundreds of Oregon items, including stereographs and programs.
