Restore Oregon’s DeMuro Award Honors Strand Ag Hall as a Top Restoration Project in Oregon

By Hennebery Eddy

Restore Oregon, a non-profit dedicated to preserving Oregon’s historic resources, announced the winners of its 2016 DeMuro Awards for historic restoration architecture, which included Hennebery Eddy’s Strand Agriculture Hall at Oregon State University. Named for the late developer Art DeMuro, the DeMuro Awards honor historic rehabilitation projects throughout the state of Oregon that demonstrate “exceptional quality, creativity and community impact from the restoration and reuse of historic properties.”

As one of Oregon’s top restoration projects, Restore Oregon judges praised Hennebery Eddy’s historic restoration architecture design for OSU’s Strand Agriculture Hall. Once dark and dismal, Strand Ag Hall has been transformed into “a stunning and vibrant center of education and student life,” according to Restore Oregon.
