The Architectural Heritage Center is a non-profit resource nexus for historic preservation owned and operated by the Bosco Milligan Foundation. As “home base” for heritage conservation in the Portland, Oregon metro area, the AHC hosts dozens of programs, tours, and exhibits each year which help peopleappreciate, restore, and maintain older and historic buildings, neighborhoods, and traditional commercial areas. The AHC is also steward of one of the largest collections of architectural artifacts in the United States, maintains a research library, and hosts monthly art exhibits which honor the historic and creative legacy of its founders, Jerry Bosco and Ben Milligan.
The work of the AHC is made possible only through contributions from a community of members and donors who support preservation of our historic building traditions, and the craftsmanship, culture, and environmental sustainability they represent. About 82% of the organization’s budget is given by individuals,
The Architectural Heritage Center’s mission is to preserve the historic character and livability of our built environment, and to promote sustainability through the re-use of period homes and buildings. Owned and operated by the non-profit Bosco-Milligan Foundation, we empower people in the Portland region to preserve both landmark buildings and the regular vintage homes and storefronts that collectively define our neighborhoods, culture, history, and quality of life.
