A Piece of Oregon History
Thank you to everyone to stood up to take a seat
The Oregon State Capitol Foundation’s Historic House and Senate Chair Sale fundraiser was an extraordinary success.
This fundraiser, which took place in 2017, offered an unprecedented opportunity to own historically significant Senate and House desk chairs that were original to the Capitol when it opened in 1938. Groundbreaking legislation – including the Oregon Beach Bill – took place in the Capitol during their use. Just imagine if these chairs could talk!
Proceeds from chair sales will be used by OSCF to benefit all who visit our beloved Capitol through the Foundation’s mission to create a living history, enhance the dignity and beauty of the Capitol, and foster cultural and educational opportunities.
