Our genealogy/Local History Room contains a large collection of historical documents, photos, and newspapers dating back to the 1800's.  Due to the rare nature of some documents and the fragile nature of many of the items, this room is available by supervised appointment.

Please contact Lili Schmidt at 541-938-8247 or email at to schedule an appointment.
