2019 Oregon Heritage Excellence Award Accepted by WHC Curator, Kylie Pine

“The award recipients represent the extraordinary efforts to preserve Oregon’s heritage… They also serve as models for others on how to develop new ideas, approaches, and innovations.” - Beth Dehn, coordinator for the Oregon Heritage Commission

Medford, Oregon - April 25, 2019 marked an extraordinary night for Kylie Pine and the Willamette Heritage Center as the curator went on stage at the Oregon Heritage Summit in Medford to accept her Oregon Heritage Excellence Award.

Two long-time WHC supporters, Elisabeth Walton Potter and Lola Hackett, nominated Pine for “going above and beyond her professional capacity as curator at Willamette Heritage Center to impact the community through teaching, volunteer work, board service, and publications related to local history”.

Pine was joined by six fellow recipients: Building a Better Community: The Canby Women’s Heritage Trail, Cultural Resources Department of the Confederated Tribes of Grand Ronde, David Dittman, Ann & Owen Nicholson, Richard & Judith Wagner, and Salem Depot.

Special guests included Gary Buck and Harold Hartman from the Siskiyou Smokejumper Base Museum, who shared a history moment about southern Oregon. Presenters were Oregon Heritage Commissioner Chelsea Rose and former KDRV news anchor Ron Brown.

The Oregon Heritage Excellence Awards are a project of Oregon Heritage, part of the Oregon Parks and Recreation Department.

The Willamette Heritage Center, unification between Mission Mill Museum (1964) and Marion County Historical Society (1950), is a stroll through the history of the Willamette Valley. Its 5-acre campus is home to the 1841 Jason Lee house (arguably the oldest wooden framed house in Oregon), 1841 Willamette Mission Parsonage, 1847 John Boon home, 1858 Pleasant Grove Church and the 1896 Thomas Kay Woolen Mill, named an American Treasure by the National Park Service. As a private non-profit association, for more than sixty years WHC has established a reputation as a leader in the preservation and interpretation of Oregon’s history. The museum’s histories are shared with visitors through daily group tours, speakers, living history, children’s programs, hands-on activities, special events, publications, the museum store and rental facilities. For more information call 503-585-7012 or visit www.willametteheritage.org. The Willamette Heritage Center is a private not-for-profit 501(c)(3) organization. It is not managed by city, county, state or federal agencies.
