EVENTS CALENDAR 2010
Past Events from 2010
Herb Beals, author of three volumes on the history of Gladstone, Oregon, will speak on the earliest inhabitants who lived or passed through our neighborhoods. We know that some Indian children attended the area's first school, sited near one of the last Clackamas encampments on the river. We know Clackamas and settlers' children played together, some forming fast friendships. But what else? Herb will bring copies of his second volume — covering the Great Depression and WW II — to sell and sign. Volume III, Gladstone, OR: Civil War to the Evening of the Depression, will be out in June, published by the Gladstone Historical Society.

INTERACTIVE COMMUNITY MEETING —
Join us to help create maps showing where things were before the
trolley left town in 1958 and commerce slowed in Old OG! Who
owned or ran businesses there and along McLoughlin Blvd or
River Road in those days? Exactly where were the bakeries,
dairies, beauty shops, egg farms or dime stores? What —
and where — were the 'special places' in your
neighborhood? We'll roll out the butcher paper and get your
"XX"s on the record. If you weren't here at that time, then
bring a neighbor — or a story from someone who was.
