Oregon Community Book’s Blog – Community Stories

Efforts were made in 2009-2010 to compile Oregon stories for a book. The OAHS supported the early efforts. The book was not completed, but a blog was set up. We want to preserve and share these special Oregon stories.

The blog contains the following stories:
