Pacific Northwest Preservation Field School
University of Oregon Historic Preservation Program


The Pacific Northwest Field School is open to everyone! Our curriculum is designed to include all those interested in archaeology, architecture, cultural resource management, history, interior architecture, landscape architecture, public history, and hands-on building maintenance as it addresses historic preservation.  The Field School is intended for anyone who is seeking hands-on experience working with preservation craftspeople in the spectacular Pacific Northwest.  Students are at the project site each day, where their lessons are interspersed with discussions, tours, projects, and nightly lectures from preservation professionals. This program is open to novice and practicing cultural resource professionals. Undergraduate and graduate credit is also available. 


The Field School takes place in late summer at different historic sites in Oregon, Washington, or Idaho each year. Participants can choose one or more sessions during the month-long Field School. 

In 2018, the Field School will venture to the foothills of Washington’s North Cascades to investigate the town of Concrete, WA, which features many buildings of its namesake material!
