A diamond in the rough shines again!

The Historic Central Hotel before renovations began.

One of the projects supported by a 2018 Cultural Trust grant to the Oregon State Historic Preservation Office was the restoration and renovation of the Historic Central Hotel in Burns.

Vacant for more than 40 years, the hotel is now reopened as one of the area’s most popular boutique hotels… all because Oregonians care about protecting their history and heritage!

Read an OPB story about the project.

And match your cultural donations with a donation to the Cultural Trust by Dec. 31 so that we can help restore more of Oregon’s historic treasures!
