Station #11 Historic Bell Comes Home!
This original 1,500-pound, 1877 bronze bell finally gets reunited with Station #11. The bell originally called in volunteers before the turn of the century, but was later retired to a museum. As of Wed it has found it’s rightful place as the New Station #11 nears completion.
Groundbreaking for Benton County Historical Museum!
“Let’s start shoveling!” added Rampton, a board member and one of the lead organizers of the fundraising campaign, as a crowd of more than 100 gathered and the corner of Southwest Second Street and Adams Avenue to celebrate.
“This going to be one of the hallmark buildings in Corvallis,” said Board President Mike Schweitzer.
“This museum will be the heart of the community,” said Benton County Commissioner Anne Schuster.
“I can’t wait for the opening and ribbon cutting,” chimed in Corvallis Mayor Biff Traber.
Folks have worked for 20 years to bring a museum to downtown Corvallis. The campaign shifted gears midway through the drive to acquire and house the 60,000 Horner artifacts in a state-of-the-art collections facility in Philomath behind the current museum building, which will remain open and continue to offer exhibits. Oregon State University’s Horner collection doubled the size of the museum’s holdings and made it even more imperative to find a bigger facility to exhibit them.

Groundbreaking Ceremony for New Samaritan Pacific Health Hospital
Gerding Builders is partnering with The Neenan Company, a well respected Design-Build firm out of Colorado, to design and construct the new Samaritan Pacific Communities Hospital in Newport, OR. We celebrated the public groundbreaking this Tues. 5/23 for this new 126,000-square-foot project. The hospital is designed to allow for larger patient rooms, maximized workspace for care providers, and a sweeping, windowed galleria that will join the current building with the new one. When complete, the new Samaritan Pacific Communities Hospital will offer an integrated medical campus that brings together specialty departments, ancillary services and outpatient clinics all under one roof.
This first phase of construction — the building of the new three-story facility — will take approximately 18 months. When it is complete and occupied, renovation will begin on the 1988 hospital building, and following that, the original, 1953 facility will be demolished to make room for parking. The full project is expected to be complete by the end of 2019.
“We are thrilled to have another exciting community project on the Central Coast and to continue our relationship with Samaritan Health Services,” said Tom Gerding, CEO of Gerding Builders. “Projects such as this bring lasting value to the community, and we appreciate the opportunity to be a part of such growth”.
Nectar Creek is Taking Shape!

Corvallis Boys & Girls Club Groundbreaking
A crowd of more than 150 people packed the Gerding Builders Gym at the Boys & Girls Club of Corvallis on Tuesday for a festive and emotional celebration of the club’s expansion.
“What an incredible day this is for our town and our community,” said club CEO Helen Higgins. “I’m at a loss for words. This is a dream for teens and families that I have had in my mind since took the job 11 years ago.”
The $6 million expansion will add 20,000 square feet of space for the club’s teen program, with the Dr. Ken and Dot Johnson Center for Youth Excellence allowing the club to double the number of teens it serves, from 150 to 300.

New Fire Station Going Up On Time & On Budget in Albany
ALBANY, Ore. – A new $10 million fire station is going up downtown, paid for by a voter-approved bond measure.
While it’s just nuts and bolts and planks and screws for now, in four months this will be the new Station 11 and administrative headquarters for the Albany Fire Department.
Fire Chief John Bradner said the 2015 bond measure allowed the department to retire the old Station 11 after 67 years.
