City of Lake Oswego Rick Minor and Julie Ricks Architectural dig at Furnace

Join the Lake Oswego Preservation Society’s tour to learn what archaeologists discovered when they investigated sites associated with Lake Oswego’s historic iron industry. Become a history detective and see what remnants of the iron industry you can spot in George Rogers Park, Old Town, and the Foothills area. Not all archaeological resources are buried; many are in plain view but go unnoticed. Lake Oswego Preservation Society advisory board member, Susanna Kuo, will share her extensive knowledge of the iron industry. Meet in front of the iron furnace in George Rogers Park.

This tour is offered by the Lake Oswego Preservation Society in partnership with the City of Lake Oswego's Parks & Rec Department; the charge is $10 per person for residents and $15 for non-residents. Register online at www.lakeoswegoparks.org or by calling 503-675-2549.
