Former Umatilla Project Headquarters Buildings, Hermiston, Umatilla County, OR



Significance: The former Umatilla Project Headquarters is located in Hermiston, Oregon. The four remaining buildings were formerly associated with construction of the Umatilla Project. The office is one of only a few remaining in U.S. Bureau of Reclamation's ownership dating from the agency's early construction period. These structures are significant at the state level for their association with the development of the irrigated agricultural economy that strongly influenced the historic development of the local area. Additionally, the office building is significant as a largely intact example of historic architecture reflecting elements of the Italian Renaissance and Prairie styles.
