Historic Preservation & Restoration

Astoria is a city of many historic structures. Some have been restored to their original condition while dozens more will need the attention of skilled craftsmen and women with the skills learned in the Historic Preservation & Restoration program at Clatsop Community College.  Our students learn construction and restoration skills in hands-on workshops where they work to preserve structures across our region. They combine this with classes on documenting historic structures, a complicated skill that is a requirement for many restoration jobs.
