                                    Brown House Project Prospers, Slowly


Santiam Heritage Foundation recently received total of $11,000 in grants for the Charles and Martha Brown House from Oregon Cultural Trust, Marion Cultural Development Corporation, The City of Stayton, and NORPAC Foods, Inc.


The mission of the Santiam Heritage Foundation to preserve and adapt the house as a community events center.


Since it began in 2001, this project has not only improved the appearance of the Stayton community, it will continue to have a growing impact. In addition to preserving and rehabilitating one of Stayton’s architectural landmarks, adapting the Charles and Martha Brown House and grounds for public uses as a cultural center will continue to benefit the community immensely -- especially when the house is officially opened as a venue for public and private events.


So far, the project has required many dedicated volunteers, private donors large and small, and grants from local businesses and statewide foundations and agencies.


The SHF Board of Trustees has always been frugal in its approach to this massive project, and now that the end is at least in sight, we will continue our reliance on small grants and volunteers to keep us going. Further grant applications are pending and planned.


SHF has solved the problem of a major eyesore on the Cascade Highway that reflected poorly on the community.  Now that the exterior restoration is nearing completion, the next very important step is making the interior useful for the community at large. The interior is now the main focus, and one of the most important phases is to build a user-friendly kitchen.  A committee is currently revising and modifying plans to complete this phase as soon as possible. 


Deadline for completing the first floor (not the grounds, yet) is the end of 2014 (Next year!).

Thank you!


Stayton ACE Hardware has donated custom-mixed paint to match the original hue of the Master Bedroom which will become SHF's new office.








SHF Receives Grants to Move Forward


The Foundation has just received news of a $2,000 grant from the Marion Cultural Development Corporation.  SHF will use the funds to replace the last broken etched-glass door panel; to repair walls, floors and ceilings; and to mill, finish and install reproduction ceiling molding.  Work will begin this spring. 


Marion Cultural Development Corporation receives it's funding from the Oregon Cultural Trust which supports cultural endeavors in Marion County.


Stayton Cooperative Telephone Company recently donated $1,500 to the Brown House Restoration Project, to be used to help fund     reproducing and replacing the kitchen door.   SCTC has faithfully supported SHF since the project began in 2000, and we are very grateful.


The Kinsman Foundation again awarded a $10,000 grant to fund significant and steady progress toward interior restoration and rehabilitation.   Their grants and steadfast support have kept the project energized and fostered the most significant progress.


Last summer, the Stayton City Council awarded a community grant for $500 to help pay for rebuilding the west porches.   Both porches are scheduled for completion this summer.


Pacific Power Foundation awarded $1,375 to support interior work and this money will be used to pay for stripping paint and wall repair and restoration.










Please consider the Santiam Heritage Foundation in your end-of-year cultural giving.  Match all your cultural giving with an equal amount to the Oregon Cultural Trust for a tax credit on your Oregon taxes and a federal tax deduction.  Your money works in three ways!
