      “BLACK PIONEERS IN EARLY OREGON” SUBJECT OF TALK IN BEND

      Gwen Carr will reveal the largely undocumented history of African Americans
      in Oregon beginning at 6 p.m., March 6, at the High Desert Museum in Bend.
      In “Black Impact: Perseverance – Black Pioneers in Early Oregon”, Garr will
      discuss the period from 1788 through the early 1900s when, amid black
      exclusion laws and anti-black sentiment, these pioneers persevered and
      thrived, becoming one of the many diverse groups that make up Oregon as we
      know it today. For reservations, email aarbow@... or call
      (541) 382-4754. For further information, visit www.highdesertmuseum.org .


      OREGON’S MOST ENDANGERED PLACES NOMINATIONS DUE MARCH 26

      Is there a historic property in your community in danger of being lost to
      hard times, development pressures, demolition or neglect?  Nominate it to
      the list of Oregon’s Most Endangered Places for 2012.  Properties selected
      list will receive public attention, assistance from the Historic
      Preservation League of Oregon (HPLO) to address immediate threats and
      develop strategies for preservation and reuse, plus the opportunity for a
      small preservation grant.

      HPLO will announce the 2012 list during a luncheon at the University Club
      in Portland on May 22.  For more information, a nomination form, and to
      check on the progress of the 2011 list, visit
      http://www.historicpreservationleague.org/endangered.php .


      PRESERVATION ROUNDTABLES DATES SET AROUND OREGON

      “Charting a Future for Oregon's Historic Masonry Buildings: Resilience,
      Access, and Economics” is the topic for this year’s series of Preservation
      Roundtables beginning in Jacksonville on March 16 from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m.

      The Roundtables will provide a forum for gathering input on solutions for
      the brick, stone, tile, and concrete block buildings that define many of
      Oregon’s historic districts, Main Streets, schools, and government
      buildings. Oregon has several thousand such buildings in need of
      rehabilitation and retrofitting and the 2012 Roundtable will take a look at
      their history, economic value, best practices for reuse, and develop policy
      recommendations needed to pass them forward for future generations.

      Additional Roundtable sessions will take place in Astoria in May, Pendleton
      in June and a wrap up will occur during July in Portland.  Visit
      www.historicpreservationleague.org/roundTable.php to learn more about
      location details and session times, and to register, or contact Peggy
      Moretti at (503) 243-1923.
