The Willamette Falls Heritage Foundation is a 501 (c)(3) charitable organization established to raise funds for historic preservation, education, and other heritage-related programs and projects in an area reaching from the mouth of the Clackamas River to the mouth of the Tualatin River. We have been celebrating industrial history in the Falls area since 2002. In 2018 the Foundation also registered in Oregon as DBA “Friends of the Locks”.
The Foundation focuses on raising public awareness of West Linn history and the under-interpreted and under-appreciated historic transportation and industrial resources on the west side of the Willamette River. Board members remain committed to building visionary, constructive partnerships with all Oregon heritage partners, for the good of the preservation community and the enrichment of Oregonians’ quality of life.
Donations to the Foundation are tax-deductible. The Foundation has no members and is not a grant-making organization.
