Windows in Time: Forest Creek? Where is Forest Creek?

Forest Creek is a tributary of the Applegate River. From its origins to the confluence, people have settled, mined, logged, built barns and schools, and buried their dead in the Log Town Cemetery.

Annice Black will tell a story of the neighbors who populated the places along the Creek. The talk will cover from the 1850s to current days, including the geography; early settlers, and economics of mining, farming, and logging. Her presentation includes photos of Forest Creek School, mining on Forest Creek in the 1930s and early 40s, and Mt. Isabelle Forest Fire Lookout. As autos sped up access to town, the schools consolidated, and Forest Creek changed from a farm community to a commuter community.

The monthly Windows in Time lunchtime lectures feature well-known writers and historians and bring alive the people, values, and events that shaped our southern Oregon heritage. Lectures are jointly sponsored by the Southern Oregon Historical Society (SOHS) and Jackson County Library Services.
