City of Lake Oswego's Industrial Past engraving by Norm Gholston

Join the Lake Oswego Preservation Society’s walking tour and discover what nineteenth century visitors saw and heard when they toured Oswego’s pioneering iron works. Excursions to Oswego to visit the iron works drew groups as varied as the Methodist Episcopal Sunday School and the Oregon Press Association. Walk in their footsteps and learn what they saw when they stood inside the casting house and watched what happened when the furnace was tapped. Join Susanna Kuo, Lake Oswego Preservation Society advisory board member, for this fascinating tour. Meet on the main stairway to the beach 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.
