The Oregon Heritage Conference brings together people who love and
work with Oregon's heritage. Designed to be interdisciplinary, the
conference focuses on all sectors of heritage, such as historic
preservation, museums, archives, libraries, and local and state
government. By bringing everyone together in one place, we can begin to
realize that our work in heritage is all interconnected, that we have
similar problems, and, together, can create better solutions.
The 2014 Oregon Heritage Conference will offer workshops, tours, and
breakout sessions about the intersection of heritage recreation
including heritage and bikeways, historic landscapes, heritage
recreation, interpreting local recreation, and integrating heritage into
local culture. There will also be tours of nearby historic trails and
Thompson’s Mills State Heritage Area. Breakout sessions will also
address collections care and disaster preparedness for museums,
archives, and libraries, historic district regulation, revitalization
strategies for downtowns, and archaeological interpretation.
