The plight of the OHS and CHP is only the tip of the iceberg in the museum situitation in Oregon. There are dozens of smaller historical organizations struggling to preserve Oregon history, with little help from the State. Just when the Oregon Cultural Trust was beginning to help the funding situiation, our political leaders grabed the Trust money, and destroyed the trust the public was begining to place in the Oregon Cultural Trust. One of the problems in Oregon appears to be confusion about funding by the public. Many Oregonians think they do not need to donate funds to OHS or other museums in Oregon, because the State must be funding these organizations. Many other states across the nation due fund history museum from State general funds.
