SNAPSHOTS OF HISTORICAL ARCHAEOLOGY IN OREGON AT MNCH, EUGENE
A new exhibit at the Museum of Natural and Cultural History (NMCH),
1680 E.15th Ave., Eugene, explores five sites recently excavated by
museum archaeologists. “Site Seeing: Snapshots of Historical Archaeology
in Oregon” examines each site to reveal a deeper understanding of the
people who lived before us and enhances our understanding of Oregon's
collective heritage. The exhibit runs through Dec. 31.
The exhibit features the experiences of Chinese immigrants at
Jacksonville and Kam Wah Chung; a Klamath homestead at Beatty Curve;
forgotten pioneers at Stevens Cemetery; and a private view of Portland
from a Portland privy.
