The historic buildings in the area are a tangible link to our past. The choices made to save these buildings can speak volumes about their significance to their communities.
Visitors will learn about the efforts to maintain and faithfully recreate the beautiful trappings at Timberline Lodge; the incredible endeavor and difficult decisions made in relocating the only Frank Lloyd Wright house in Oregon; the conservation efforts behind the Ermatinger House; the theories about the unique construction of the Molalla Log House; and the challenges of preserving the Carman House.
