OREGON EXPERIENCE

Capturing Oregon's Frontier

  • Aired: 04/09/2013
  • 29:00
  • Rating: TV-G
At the turn of the 20th century, rural Southern Oregon was still the rough frontier. Men searched the rivers for gold. Barefoot children attended one-room schoolhouses. Horses plowed dirt fields and oxen hauled giant timber. Communities grew and later turned into ghost towns. It is history that might have faded from memory. Instead, images from all of these scenes are preserved.
