Historic Eugene

Preserving Eugene's History

Eugene's older neighborhoods and houses are a critical part of our city's history and character. Just as the Willamette River, Skinner and Spencer buttes, and the Cascades define Eugene's natural surroundings, our historic neighborhoods of settlement era houses, modest bungalows, and stately craftsman homes trace Eugene's history and help define the character of the city and of the Northwest.The purpose of Eugene's Historic Preservation Program is to increase public awareness of this history and character and to facilitate preservation, restoration and rehabilitation of historic structures, landscape features, and other culturally significant physical objects and geographic areas.
