Presented by Charlotte Lehan and Greg Leo, local historians
What do you REALLY know about Wilsonville History? Join us for a
presentation on the most significant – and sometimes overlooked – events in
Wilsonville history. Along the way, two of Wilsonville’s most knowledgeable
local historians will challenge some accepted "facts" to remind us
that history is never actually finished but is always open to new discoveries
and interpretations of the past.

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.
