An exciting new blog is starting: PastCast, for people who save places:
“We’re excited to announce the debut episode of PastCast, a show for the people who save places! (Hint: That’s you.) Our mission is to bring you great stories of cool preservation projects around the country — and let the people behind them tell you all about it in their own words.”
Note the preservation groups on the bottom right of the blog; two of our own here in Oregon are present: Architectural Heritage Center, and Historic Preservation League, who now goes by the name Restore Oregon!
I want to write about how the furnishings inside the historic places is part of the history of the place; too little emphasis is placed on these items.
Above are several images of original historic furniture from a home in Portland, Oregon.
I am proud to live in a place where preservation matters!
