Thank you for asking Diana. I think you posted on FB as well. I hope we can utilize the video at our fundraising functions, that would be awesome!

Many years ago, when there was a move to light all the Portland Bridges, the next bridge to be lighted was the St. Johns Bridge. Pins etc. were sold as a way to finance the lighting…but it never happened. Does anyone know what happened to the funds collected for that and if they could be transferred to preserve this great old building?
And should not the company that caused the pollution, make a substantial contribution towards making it a historically, clean environment for present and future generations to learn from?

Those of us who are working towards saving the Gasworks building aren’t aware of the fund raised to light the St. John’s Bridge, we’re not the same folks who raised that money. The factories were closed in 1957, Northwest Natural Gas didn’t do the damage to the land and waterfront, they did purchase the company that did.

I took pictures a couple of summers ago on a trip out to Sauvie Island. My husband and I had no idea what this building was at the time. I have heard nothing until now about efforts to save it from demolition.

I took several pictures of this building a couple of summers ago on a trip out to Sauvie Island. My husband and I had no idea what the building had been at that time.
I haven’t heard anything until now about efforts to try and save it from demolition.

Your site’s graphics looks not proffesional.
You schould change it. Better design means more conversions,
faster load and greater confidence of visitors. This is something that can be useful for you, search in google:

Thanks for the feedback, but we are very grassroots. I was assigned the task after someone else didn’t complete the blog,and don’t have a lot of knowledge, but it’s funky, we love it that way.
