Medford, Oregon (July 13, 2020)—Ashland residents Linda and Peter Kreisman will present the Windows in Time local history lecture "Our Search for Historic Markers in Jackson County" online on Wednesday, August 5 from 12 Noon–1:00 p.m. via the Zoom video conferencing app. All are welcome to attend this free lecture.
Both Linda and Peter Kreisman grew up in Ashland. They left in 1961 and spent their careers in Minnesota. When they returned to Ashland for retirement, they began a search for the seemingly mythical Buck Rock Railroad Tunnel they had heard about while growing up. When they finally found one end of the tunnel, there was a historical marker giving information about the site. This started them on a search for other such markers, and over the past 12 years, Peter and Linda have found over 90 sites and markers. The sites represent historic transportation routes, town sites, military and Native American sites, and cemeteries. In their Windows in Time presentation, Linda and Peter will present a variety of the sites they have found in Jackson County.
Program registration can be found here. A recording of the program will later be made available on the Jackson County Library Services YouTube channel; subscribe here.
