Historical Sites Could Become Recognized in Southern Oregon, Corvallis, Portland

Published 06/19/2012

(Medford, Oregon) – The next big tourism hotspots in Oregon could be born soon, as state officials mull over historic status for various locales in La Pine, Corvallis, Enterprise, Medford and in Portland.

Oregon's State Advisory Committee on Historic Preservation (SACHP) will consider nominations to the National Register of Historic Places in a one-day meeting on June 29th at the Downtown Medford Branch of the Jackson County Library at 205 South Central Ave. The public meeting will begin at 10 a.m..

The committee will review proposed nominations for individual properties in Corvallis, La Pine, Medford, Portland, and Enterprise. A meeting agenda is available at http://www.oregonheritage.org/OPRD/HCD/NATREG/nrhp_sachphome.shtml

Among the possibilities are the Irish Bend Covered Bridge in Corvallis, Portland's Rose City Golf Clubhouse and the Wallowa County Chieftain Building.

Nominations recommended for listing in the Register by the SACHP are forwarded to the National Park Service, which maintains the Register under the authority of the National Historic Preservation Act of 1966. Members of the Committee hold credentials in many historic preservation-related fields.

The meeting site is accessible to people with disabilities. Special accommodations for the meeting may be made by calling (503) 986-0690. More information about the National Register and Oregon properties listed in the Register is online at www.oregonheritage.org (click on "National Register" on the left side of the page).
