Help Preserve and restore our collection


The Oregon Electric Railway Historical Society is actively pursuing many projects to enhance our museum. Many of these projects we seek funding via grants from many sources. However, a big portion of our funding must come from our members and from the general public to ensure there is support for our endeavors. 

The OERHS is now accepting on-line donations via PayPal to fund our various projects. Please look our projects over and help us grow our museum by donating. Your donations are considered tax deductible as the OERHS is  recognized by the IRS as a Non-For-Profit public benefit Corporation under Section 501(c)3.

The OERHS is also seeking funds to bring a Milan Interurban  and transportation and storage of 9 Brussels trams to the museum.
