About Rose City Revelations

Rose City Revelations

Since Portland celebrates the annual Rose Festival every June, it’s the perfect time to join Rocky Smith as he explores the history of how Stumptown came to be known as the Rose City. Rocky will convey the struggles of pioneers who brought rose bushes across the Oregon Trail to plant in Oregon Territory as a symbol of hope and new beginning. From the inauguration site of the First Governor of the Territory to the Father of Oregon’s gift to a little girl stricken with typhoid, roses have been the huge part of the traditions and folklore of our region. Rocky will weave the threads that lead to the creation of the Rose Festival and discuss those who were responsible for its founding. Guests will also hear some amazing ghost stories and legends associated with Oregon’s two most famous haunted mansions and hear stories of spirits from Portland’s past, some who were laid to rest at Lone Fir Cemetery.
