Sessions devoted to preserving mid-century modern buildings will be featured at this year’s Oregon Heritage Conference scheduled for May 9-10 in Portland.
These sessions will take place during the afternoon of the second day of the conference. Topics include gaining appreciation for mid-century modern buildings and developing tools for local governments for managing mid-century modern properties. These sessions will be followed on Saturday with a tour led by the Historic Preservation League of Oregon of mid-century modern homes designed by Portland architect Saul Zaik.
The conference theme is “Connect Through Stewardship,” and other sessions will focus on adaptive reuse of historic buildings, heritage advocacy, community engagement, and collections care and disaster preparedness.
Attendees will include community leaders, staff and volunteers from historical societies, museums, archives, historic cemeteries, ethnic organizations, schools, historic preservation commissions, humanities groups, Main Street programs, the tourism industry, economic development, staff from local, state, and federal governments, and
professional historians and preservationists.
