The Newberg Area Historical Society hosts a FREE monthly presentation focused on sharing the history of Newberg. The programs cover a variety of subjects which facilitate conversations between community members and historians.
September 26th: Enjoy a presentation from local historian George Edmonston, Jr. "The Turning Point: East Chehalem in the 1880's". Mr. Edmonston co-founded the NAHS with his late wife Lucy; he will present an overview of how events in the 1880s were integral to transforming the area from a loose collection of unincorporated communities into the city of Newberg - and quite literally got the town on the map.
Presentations are in the Grand Lobby.
