National Historic Preservation Month Kick-Off Party
May 3 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm
Every May, Deschutes County Historical Society and our partners celebrate the myriad of ways that historic preservation enhances our quality of life. With a full schedule of events, it is easy to understand why This Place Matters.
What is historic preservation? Historic preservation means saving the story of us—the communities we cherish, the parks we love, the buildings we admire, the little stories we always share with visitors. From ancient cultures through the growth of our communities among the sagebrush, it is about saving the places, buildings, artifacts, stories, and memories that preserve and enhance our story.
Sponsored by the Deschutes County Historical Society, the Bend Chamber of Commerce, Deschutes County Historic Landmarks Commission, City of Bend Landmarks Commission, City of Redmond Landmarks Commission, and the Deschutes Land Trust.
A full schedule of events for the month is now available on the Deschutes Historical Museum website.
