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.
