State Historic Preservation Office Transfers collection [graphic] 1980-2010

The State Historic Preservation Office Transfers Collection consists of photographic images, written historical descriptions, reports, and reproductions of architectural and engineering drawings relating to historic buildings and engineering and industrial sites, mostly within the state of Oregon. Included in this collection are mitigation reports documenting structures prior to demolition and/or replacement. Reports are deposited by the State Historic Preservation Office, the Oregon Department of Transportation, or consulting contractors. James B. Norman photographed many of these sites. The Oregon Historical Society serves as one of two state repositories for these materials, most of which were compiled as part of the Historic American Building Survey (HABS) and the Historic American Engineering Record (HAER), a program of the National Parks Service. The Library of Congress is the national repository for HABS/HAER documentation. Surveyed sites include residential and commercial buildings, dams and bridges, including Portland bridges spanning the Willamette River and rural historic covered bridges, the Willamette Falls Locks, the Historic Columbia River Highway, Red's Horse Ranch, and Shriners Hospital for Children in Portland.
