Versatile Wood Products is a proud sponsor of the Historic Preservation League of Oregon’s annual “Most Endangered Places” list. Yesterday’s announcement of the 2013 list includes some fascinating structures… from a blimp hanger in Tillamook Bay to a historic schoolhouse in Antelope Oregon to the iconic State Hospital.

The list includes two projects we have already been working with: The Multnomah County Courthouse (which features doors by Versatile Wood Products) and the Pioneer Mother’s Cabin, part of the Robert Newell House and Museum in St. Paul, Oregon, which finds itself in danger of slipping into the Willamette River.

Peggy Moretti, of the Historic Preservation League of Oregon, explains:

The list indicates which historic properties are “in imminent danger of being lost to hard times, development pressures, demolition, or neglect. Over the course of the next year we’ll bring together rehabilitation expertise, resources, and local leaders to revitalize these properties. We want to help them become viable, functioning contributors in their communities and pass them forward to future generations.”
