Preservation Month Fair at the State Capitol

May is National Historic Preservation Month and for Oregon communities throughout the state it’s an opportunity to reflect on significant places, artifacts, and collections that help tell the stories of our past as well as to recognize contributions that individuals and organizations have made to local preservation projects.

On Thursday, May 30th, Heritage Programs, a division of the Oregon Parks and Recreation Department, will host the 5th Annual Preservation Month Fair at the State Capitol State Park in Salem. Community organizations from around the area and several state agencies will provide information about their efforts to help preserve Oregon’s history.

The event will be held from 11 a.m. until 1 p.m. on the grounds of the State Capitol on the north side of Court Street, opposite the Capitol building.

Nineteen participating organizations will highlight the history of their institutions and their local and statewide work to preserve important sites related to Oregon’s historic events, persons, and places.

Participating exhibitors include the Salem Landmarks Commission, Historic Deepwood Estate, Bush House Museum, Oregon State Hospital Museum, Oregon Military Museum and Historical Outreach Foundation, Oregon Historical Society, Daughters of the American Revolution, Oregon State Parks with friends groups from Silver Falls and Champoeg State Parks, Oregon Cultural Trust, Oregon Department of Transportation, Oregon State Capitol Foundation, Oregon State Archives, Oregon State Library, Oregon Historic Trails Advisory Council, and Oregon Historic Cemetery and National Register of Historic Places programs. The McKenzie A’s will display 30 restored vintage Ford Model A Cars. Also on display a World War II M3A1 Stuart Light Tank and a Korean War Jeep.
As part of the event, the Oregon State Capitol will offer a free 30-minute tour of the building at 12:00 and 12:30, including a 121 step climb to see the “Oregon Pioneer,” which stands atop the building, and t offering a spectacular view of the city and the surrounding area. Those interested in participating in the Capitol building tour should meet 10 minutes early at the information kiosk on the 1st floor in the Capitol.
