Is the Molalla Log house Oregon’s oldest building?  Gregg Olson, an
authority on pioneer structures in Oregon, will present a “house
detective” lecture to explore this question beginning at 7 p.m., May 9
in Columbia Hall, Room 219, at Clatsop Community College, 1651 Lexington
Ave., Astoria.  Olson’s lecture will cover the historical context of the
house, cultural trends in log buildings, and his use of dendrochronology
(dating based on an analysis of tree rings).
For more information contact John Goodenberger at (503) 325-0209.
An informational meeting about The Oregon Encyclopedia (The OE) will
take place from 5:30 – 7:30 p.m., May 10 at Central Oregon Community
College Library, 2600 NW College Way, Bend. 
Kelly Cannon-Miller, historian and Director of the Des Chutes
Historical Museum will give an informational talk about the process of
writing an entry for The OE, illustrating her presentation with her
current research on the Bowman Museum in Prineville. She will also
provide information about resources available to support research and
writing of local history. OE Executive Director Bill Lang will work with
participants to identify possible central Oregon topics for inclusion in
the Encyclopedia.
