Historic Preservation in Portland - A Lasting Legacy
Meyer Memorial Trust Gallery
Sponsored by: Rejuvenation

Portland’s early preservation success is based on a working partnership between “grass roots” preservationists, including Jerry Bosco, Ben Milligan, and Eric Ladd, and working architects, including George McMath. Their efforts created a lasting legacy of significant architectural resources.  

This exhibit tells the story of the transformation of West’s Block into the Architectural Heritage Center, a facility that will educate and advocate historic preservation for decades to come. It also illustrates how a small group of people led by example to help found the preservation movement in Portland.


Salesmen’s Samples – Very Portable Hardware
Runs through April, 2009
Liz’s Antique Hardware Gallery
Supported by: Precision Images

A sample can be better than a thousand words or even a picture, when it comes to making a sale. The traveling hardware salesman was equipped with the best examples of his offerings, and they became the key to successful merchandising of door hardware in all of its complexities.

“Salesmen Samples” exhibits a great variety of rare “traveling” hardware samples, as well as mounted hardware, from the late 19th Century into the 1950s. Hardware produced as advertising “souvenirs” will also be included.


Angels in the Architecture
Runs through spring 2009
Murdock Memorial Classroom
Supported by: Pro Photo Supply

Winning images from the Architectural Heritage Center’s annual photography contest captures surprising artistic details in the built environment of Portland.
