Oregon SHPO launches crowd-sourced survey of state's African American historic sites

In honor of Historic Preservation Month, the Oregon Black Pioneers, in partnership with the State Historic Preservation Office, announces a property survey project entitled "Preserving Oregon's African American Historic Places." Working with community partners and a dedicated community volunteers we endeavor to protect and preserve Oregon's African American historic sites and places from the time period of 1844 to 1984.

The revelation of relatively unknown and/or hidden African American historic sites and places promises to add yet another dimension to Oregon's rich history.
