Buckhorn Mineral Springs (BMS) is a non-profit entity separate from Buckhorn Springs Inc, which operates the retreat facilities. Its primary purpose is to promote, protect, restore, and maintain the BMS property. Due to the number of resources on the property, Buckhorn was listed on the National Register of Historic Places on January 17 1989, as its own Historic District. BMS received its non-profit status in 2000, and by 2001 was awarded its first grant, from the Oregon State Historic Preservation Office (SHPO) to do stabilization and preservation work on Cabins 9-12. BMS has since received a second grant from SHPO, which covered restoration work on the most significant part of Buckhorn’s history, the Vapor Bath House area. Future projects and grants are in the works for BMS, please see BMS Projects page to find out more.
