Preservation Toolkit

Before you begin working to save or adaptively reuse a place that matters to you, arm yourself with the information from The Preservation Toolkit. You'll learn how to plan your project, fund it, get public support, and celebrate your work!

Preservation Business Directory

Older homes and revitalization projects require specialized services, materials, and attention by architects, contractors, and craftspeople. The Preservation Business Directory helps connect property owners with the service providers that understand historic buildings.

Conservation Easements

Preserve your property in perpetuity--that means forever! A conservation easement is the only legal way to guarantee a property's protection from demolition or incompatible alteration in Oregon. Learn more about the benefits of this program and how to get started.

Save Oregon's Heritage Barns

With an estimated 11,400 barns built prior to 1960, Oregon needs to identify and protect these rural buildings, structures, and landscapes that define its agricultural heritage. The Restore Oregon board formed the Heritage Barns Taskforce in 2011 to lead its efforts in that field. Find tools and resources to keep Oregon's barns for the next 100 years.
