Portland, Oregon - As part of a presentation given by Tim Cannan, President of PreservationDirectory.com, at the Architectural Heritage Center's "Old House Fair", we are pleased to announce the availability of a free comprehensive resource guide for historic and cultural resource preservation. The title of the resource guide is "Preservation Resources on the Web".
The comprehensive resource guide presents primary online resources in the field of historic and cultural resource preservation, with an emphasis on resources in Portland and the State of Oregon. Topics include researching your historic home; funding sources and tax credit programs available; utilizing your State Historic Preservation Office (SHPO); finding an undergrad/graduate program in historic preservation; historic real estate resources online; preservation event/conference directories; and much more.
We may develop future resource guides that emphasize other locales and regions, but as the presentation was given in Portland, OR, the emphasis is on Portland and Oregon resources. The presentation does cover national resources in depth, so this will be of interest to preservationists and historic homeowners everywhere.
