About this collection

Southern Oregon is rich with stories of generations of families who have worked in the dense forests or in the mills, who have plowed the fields, and who have run cattle. The Stories of Southern Oregon project celebrates heritage agriculture, the timber industry, mining, and the mills with video family histories of our region's folks, fields, forests and foods and also photographs, documents, and other ephemera. These materials give texture, context, and nuance to Southern Oregon's history, the families that have lived here, and our shared cultural traditions.

 

The Stories of Southern Oregon heritage preservation project is funded by the National Endowment for the Humanities Common Heritage award to Southern Oregon University, the Oregon Heritage Commission, the Rogue Valley Winegrowers Association, and the Erath Family Foundation.
