July 19 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Restore Oregon members are invited on a rare opportunity to tour one of the state’s oldest houses amidst its restoration back into a private residence. The long neglected c.1848 Silas Beeks House was on the brink of being sold to a demolition-oriented buyer two years ago when an anonymous preservationist stepped up to purchase the historic house and design a vision for its restoration. Now, at the early stages of the rehabilitation process, the Gothic Revival farmhouse provides a unique opportunity to see inside the skeleton of a pioneer-era property.
Whether you own a historic house, love above-ground archaeology, or just want to tour something unique, members are invited to spend an evening with the Beeks House on July 19 from 6pm to 8pm.
Local food and beverages will be served.
The entire grounds—inside and out—of the property will be open for self-guided exploration.
Local experts will be on hand to answer questions and share history about the house.
All participants will be required to wear closed-toed shoes, sign a liability waiver upon arrival, and—if you’d like to sit over dinner—to bring your own lawn chair.
The house is located 30 minutes west of Portland in Forest Grove and is not accessible for those with mobility limitations.
Not a Restore Oregon member? General ticket sales will open July 1 if tickets are still available.
Additional details and specific directions to the house will be provided to participants.
Tickets are non-refundable.
