Eugene Launches Interactive Map

EUGENE, Ore. — If you’re racking your brain on how to entertain guests coming into town, the city of Eugene may be able to help out.

The city just launched an interactive map of historic structures and locations.

Civic Stadium, originally built in 1938, was added to the National Register of Historic Places about four years ago. It’s just one of the thousands of places listed on the site.

There are more than 5,000 sites listed on the map. Each site is either on the National Register of Historic Places, identified as a city historic landmark or identified by the Cultural Resource Inventory Program.

You can type in any address to see what places are nearby to show off.

“There’s a lot of vital and important development going on in our community, and I think it’s important that we keep sort of a commensurate level of preservation that’s going on at the same time so we have a balanced approach as we move towards the future,” said Andrew Fisher, Historic Review Board Chair.

The city’s Historic Review Board suggested the idea earlier this year and was made possible by a matching grant from the state Historic Preservation Office.

The map will also list a number of points of interest in town to check out, such as the Wayne Morse Free Speech Plaza downtown, Pre’s Trail near Alton Baker Park and U of O’s very own Autzen Stadium.
