Ms. Peggy Moretti

BIO

Peggy Moretti – spent over 20 years as a marketing executive and business entrepreneur, but underneath she was always an Old House Geek. Now she’s pleased to combine her business background with her passion for preservation and Place Making in her role as Executive Director of Restore Oregon.
Peggy has served on the Board of Directors of the Pittock Mansion, spent several years on staff at the Bosco-Milligan Foundation, and is the proud owner of the Louis Pfunder House, which is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

STATEMENT FROM THE Executive Director

"What places would you hate to lose? Ensuring that they’re protected and passed forward won’t happen by accident. Restore Oregon supports vital field work, education, and advocacy to protect the historic neighborhoods, Main Streets, schools, theaters, bridges, barns, and heritage sites that make Oregon so unique and livable.

Our programs include:
- Oregon’s Most Endangered Places – brings attention and resources to an annual list of at-risk historic properties to bring them back to life in their community.

- The Preservation Roundtable – brings together different viewpoints to develop solutions to challenges such as the revitalization of Oregon’s historic Main Streets.

- Educational Workshops – on topics such as How to Save a Historic Building, and behind-the-scenes field trips to special heritage destinations.

- Legislative Advocacy – for better rehab incentives, flexible regulations, appropriate standards, and good land use policies.

- Historic Conservation Easements – to protect historic properties in perpetuity from demolition, neglect, or inappropriate alteration.
