Friends of the Oregon Caves and Chateau
The Friends of the Oregon Caves and Chateau is a non-profit organization cooperating with the National Park Service (NPS), in the preservation, stewardship and improvement of cultural and natural resources of Oregon Caves National Monument and Preserve. The Oregon Caves and the Chateau are unique assets of national significance that contribute to the identity and economic well-being of the local community. The Oregon Caves Chateau, a National Historic Landmark, is the primary historic structure in the Oregon Caves National Monument. It is one of three publicly owned, historic lodges of Oregon that provides overnight accommodations. The furnishings and setting create a feeling of nostalgia that is unforgettable.
The Friends raise funds to restore the interior furnishings and to show local, statewide, and national support for a priority in the National Park Service budget for the full structural restoration of the Chateau.
Goals of the Friends of the Oregon Caves and Chateau are:
Build the Friends of the Oregon Caves and Chateau into a strong partner organization to provide financial and volunteer assistance for the benefit of Oregon Caves National Monument and Preserve.
Develop Restoration, conservation and maintenance plans for the Chateau, Monterey furniture, and historic Guide Dormitory.
