Powerhouse Center on the Bull Run

Powerhouse Center on the Bull Run, Inc. is a non-profit organization dedicated to preserving the Bull Run Powerhouse and to using it as a creative, recreational, and educational center highlighting the past and future of our evolving Northwest regional rivers and watersheds.


The Powerhouse site will serve as a museum to showcase the history of the facility and the region, with small scale artifacts displayed inside the Powerhouse and larger items, including transformers, water valves, other powerhouse related artifacts, displayed outside. The Powerhouse Center on the Bull Run is working to bring a Bull Run Railway car and a PGE log flume rail car to the site.

Classes about the history of the facility and the region, as well as classes about the natural environment of the Bull Run River and Sandy River watershed, will be held on site.  The historic machine shop and other interior spaces will provide opportunities for craft shops and artists’ work spaces.  Community events, such as open houses/tours, events for area non-profits to engage with the community, fund raisers for the facility, and annual picnics for the PGE retirees will be held on site.
