We are visitors in our own city today!
It's fun to play tourist and look the place over with new eyes.
Our city was the end of the trail...
"Everybody, get out of the wagon!"
Are you sure the pioneers came over in this?
Where is the steering wheel?
Here we are, in front of the big map.
No GPS in the covered wagons!
So, first the pioneers built some houses out of logs.
Looks kind of drafty.
..and they planted a garden, so they would have something to eat.
The Barclays used to live here!
Look, here they are now! Hee Hee
Mrs. Barclay really likes us.
She invited mom to come back for Victorian Handcraft Demonstration Days.
This is the historic, 'Elizabeth Clark House.'
The first house in the county to have colored plumbing fixtures!
Now there is a real bit of Oregon Trivia!
Here is the resting place of John McLoughlin.
He came to this place in 1829 and staked claim for England.
It wasn't until 1842, that he named this place, Oregon City.
In 1845, settlers from the United States, voted the town, the seat of the Oregon Territory's first provisional government.
