Walk into Ashland’s Past

October 7 @ 10:30 am


Although maybe not as exciting as having an actual “time machine,” Klamath Bird Observatory board member Jeff LaLande (archaeologist and historian) will again offer a “Walk Into Ashland’s Past.” It was more than a year ago that Jeff first offered this event. It proved to be very popular.

You will walk through the site of the Shasta Indians’ village, where the Plaza is now, and through the town’s changes — from initial settlement by White Americans in the 1850s to the present time. This history walk is meant to enrich your own experience of the town. (Plus, all of your $$$ go to KBO!)

Choose to join one of the two “history walks”: Oct. 7 and Oct. 14. Both walks will follow the same route, each lasting about three hours. The walk will be followed by the enjoyment of your choice of a “cheerful beverage” and snack at a downtown eatery — Jeff is picking up the tab.

When: Saturday, October 7th and October 14th, 11:30 AM – 2:30 PM
Where: We will meet outside the front of the Ashland Library (near the statue at the intersection of Siskiyou Blvd. and Gresham St. We’ll spend time moseying along East Main Street and along North Main Street to Laurel, then we’ll walk through the Granite St./Skidmore neighborhood, and end at the Plaza.
Max. number of people for each history walk: 18
Donation per person: $75
