“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

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

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.
