OLHD March 2017 Meeting

7:00 P.M.

Weather Permitting!

14496 SE River Rd. @ Maple St.


With a little bit of luck Old Man Winter will not interrupt our meeting in March!

At our last meeting we spent a fair amount of time discussing At Risk Historic Houses and the things that can lead to their ultimate demolition.

We will be continuing that discussion at our March meeting, focusing on things that OLHD might realistically do to promote interest and pride in our community’s historic homes, with the ultimate goal of encouraging stewardship in these houses – preserving them into the future.

Our guest speaker for the evening will be Joyce Allmon, Willamette View Manor director of Communications and Community Relations, speaking about the History of Willamette View Manor.
