PreservationDirectory.com Returns from Cross-Country Heritage Tour of the United States

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – July 7, 2011
Contact: Tim Cannan (503) 308-0500

Portland, Oregon - Tim Cannan, President of PreservationDirectory.com, has just returned to Portland, Oregon from a cross-country heritage tour of the United States.  The tour took him through portions of 17 different States in 3 weeks.  He visited historic places and cultural sites along the way, and had the opportunity to meet with some of the dedicated preservationists working to preserve our nation's rich cultural heritage.  

More than 1,200 photos were taken.  A sample set of some of our favorite photos from the entire trip have just been added to our Facebook page at www.facebook.com/preservationdirectory.

Photos will be uploaded regularly over the coming months, which will include cities, historic districts, roadside attractions, historic hotels/inns, and cultural sites visited on the trip.  Photos will be featured on the PreservationDirectory.com Historic Photo Gallery, as well as their Facebook/Twitter photo galleries (@histpres).  

Overviews of each stop and favorite places/sites will also be added to our Preservation Press Releases area in a new Heritage Travel & Tourism section at www.preservationdirectory.com/PreservationBlogs/ArticleCategories.aspx.

The "Northern Portion of the First Leg" included portions of OR, WA, ID, MT, WY, SD, MN, WI, IL, IN, OH, PA, and NY.

Cities and historic sites visited on the "Northern Portion" included: Hood River, OR; Spokane, WA; Wallace, ID; Cataldo Mission State Park, ID; Butte, MT; Little Bighorn Battlefield National Monument, MT; Deadwood/Lead, SD; Mitchell Corn Palace, SD; Beloit, WI; Notre Dame University, IN; and the Finger Lakes Region / Rochester, NY. 

The "Middle Portion of the Return Leg" included portions of NY, OH, IN, IL, IA, NE, CO, UT, ID, and OR. 

Cities and historic sites visited on the "Return Leg" included: Cleveland, OH; Chicago, IL; Iowa City, IA; Lincoln, NE; Original Pony Express Station, Gothenburg, NE; Estes Park, CO; Rocky Mountain National Park, CO; Steamboat Springs, CO; Dinosaur, CO; Heber City, UT; Salt Lake City, UT; and Baker City, OR.

A special thanks also to all who submitted such detailed descriptions of historic and cultural places to visit.  Unfortunately our extensive 3 week trip still only allowed us to visit the "northern and middle" of the United States.  Before venturing off, we put out a call for suggestions to our network of preservationists (over 20k strong now!), and were amazed by the amount of passionate and detailed descriptive entries we received.  In addition to monthly blog posts about the places we did visit, PreservationDirectory.com will also be compiling a complete overview of all of the suggestions we received to which we were unfortunately unable to visit.  We hope to visit all of these places in the future, and hope that they will inspire you to visit too! 

If you would like to submit a detailed description of your house museum, historic district, theater / opera house, historic and/or cultural site, we will be happy to include them in future blogs as additional places we encourage our readers to visit. 

We had so much fun visiting with you and experiencing a small sample of our nation's wonderful heritage!  Look for monthly blog posts and photo galleries on our main website PreservationDirectory.com and also through our Facebook/Twitter feeds:
