Title: Historic Preservation of Pacific Northwest Beach Houses: A Study of Beach Houses along Tillamook County's Coast
Author: Donovan-Boyd, Adrienne K.
Abstract: Preserving Pacific Northwest historic beach houses in coastal communities can often be a daunting task due to the complexities that arise when combining preservation, planning, development, and climatic hardships. Using Tillamook County's coastline as the study area, this thesis explores the historical development of Tillamook County's structures and the current barriers that exist when trying to preserve them. Historical discussions include the development of transportation routes, recreational amenities, and the evolution of coastal construction materials, along with historic local and regional planning decisions that helped shaped towns along Tillamook County's coastline. Following this historical discussion, current preservation challenges will be discussed as well as the recommendations for preserving and maintaining vernacular coastal beach houses of the Pacific Northwest.
