Kinsman Foundation Historic Preservation Grant entries
With support from the Kinsman Foundation Historic Preservation Grant, the OE has been able to publish twenty-four new entries and over one hundred images on Oregon places and structures that are listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The Kinsman Foundation is a private foundation built on the philanthropy of John and Elizabeth T. Kinsman of Milwaukie.
One of the OE’s goals is to include as many entries as possible on historic places and buildings in Oregon. Making authoritative information on such topics widely available will both foster a better understanding of Oregon history and culture and encourage the preservation of important historic buildings and districts. The entries describe architectural details of the structures, as well as examine how those structures are significant to the people who built and used them.
