  3. The Tualatin Historical Society began in 1986, 29 years ago. Co-founders Loyce Martinazzi and the late Karen Lafky Nygaard thought their interest in Tualatin's early days might be shared by others. They were correct. Early programs, held in the then-new Senior Center and built around a theme--early schools, Oregon Trail settlers, covered bridges--drew good crowds. Many activities and publications followed, fulfilling the mission "to preserve, promote and interpret the rich and colorful history of Tualatin." http://www.tualatinhistoricalsociety.org/ Contact Us Mailing Address: Tualatin Historical Society P.O.

  4. The Southern Oregon Historical Society is committed to preserving the rich heritage of this seven-county region, spanning from Curry County, which touches the Pacific Ocean, to Malheur County, which borders Idaho. Our exceptional collections tell stories about early settlers and their encounters with the Native people who populated the area; railroads and the commerce they brought with them; the pear orchard industry that still lays claim to being the area's biggest business; the more recent evolution of wineries; and the personal stories of the thousands of people who call this region home. The Society has undergone great change over the past 5 years - becoming more modern in our ambitions. The Society currently operates the historic Hanley Farm near Central Point and the Research Library in downtown Medford. http://www.sohs.org/ 106 N.

  10. In the late 1940s, when proposals were made to demolish both the building that housed Oregon's capitol at statehood and Marion County's 80-year-old courthouse, many people became upset at the loss of Salem's heritage. Eventually, in 1950, they formed the Marion County Historical Society. Led by its first president, David Duniway, the society promoted historic preservation in Marion County as well as held educational programs and published booklets of Marion County history. It led preservation efforts for historic buildings such as the Jason Lee House, the Thomas B. Kay Woolen Mill and Historic Deepwood Estate. It also briefly operated a museum in Gervis in the early 1970s. About 1980, the society began a museum in a small room of Mission Mill Museum. This effort expanded in 1984 when the society purchased the mill's old retail store and converted it into a museum, in which the society's headquarters were still located in 2002. The society has expanded its services and activities over the years. It is the only full-service historical organization in the county providing a museum and research library, educational programs, publications, and heritage tree program. In 1999, it received a certificate of commendation (one of less than 100 awarded) from the American Association for State and Local History, and the NonProfit Member of the Year Award from the Salem Convention and Visitors Association. http://www.salemhistory.net/places/marion_county_historical_society.htm The society's museum is located on the northwest corner of Mission Mill Museum at 260 12th St. SE. Its hours are noon-4 p.m. Wednesday-Friday and 10 a.m.-4 p.m. Saturday. For more information, phone (503) 364-2128 View full record
