About Smoke Watchers: Fire Lookouts of Central Oregon

Fire lookouts used to play a critical role spotting wild fires in our region. Replaced by modern technology, some have been demolished while others turned into overnight lodging. Join us to learn the important role played by these historic places and stories of the characters who manned them.

About Old St. Francis History Pub

Old St. Francis History Pub

These monthly, free events are open to everyone interested in Oregon and Pacific Northwest history. Co-sponsored by like-minded historical and civic organizations, we bring you experts, scholars, first-person experiencers and historians who expound on topics from Lewis and Clark to shipwrecks, hop growing to women pioneers and far, far beyond. It's like being back in the classroom - except this time you get to settle into comfortable seats and enjoy a drink or two with dinner while you listen and learn.
