Charles Henry Burggraf (1866-1942) was an American architect primarily working in Salem, Oregon and Albany, Oregon, who also worked in Hastings, Nebraska and in Grand Junction, Colorado. A number of his works are listed on the U.S. National Register of Historic Places.
Burggraf was a prolific architect of public buildings such as courthouses, hospitals, university buildings, schools and churches. Among his works are courthouses for nine of Oregon's 36 counties (in Coos, Douglas, Gilliam, Lake, Lincoln, Linn, Sherman, Wheeler, and Tillamook counties, of which only the Tillamook, Wheeler, and Sherman buildings survived in 1998). Of hospital buildings, during 1893 to 1909 he designed three buildigs at the Fairview Home for the Feebleminded, three at the Oregon State Hospital, and three at the Hospital Cottage Home. At the Oregon Agricultural College (later Oregon State University), he designed Waldo Hall (a girls' dormitory) and the Agricultural Hall. At the Eastern Oregon Experiment Station in Union, he designed two buildings. He designed numerous public schools in Oregon, including in Albany, Ashland, Bandon, Carlton, Coquille, Corvallis, Cottage Grove, Dayton, Drain, Eugene, Fossil, Grants Pass, Jacksonville, Jefferson, Junction City, Klamath Falls, Lakeview, Medford, North Bend, North Yamhill, Roseburg, Salem, Springfield, and Union. He also designed churches, commercial buildings, at least one hotel and one bank and one library, and other buildings.
