Oregon’s Main Street: U.S. Highway 99 “The Folk History”

Oregon’s Main Street: U.S. Highway 99 “The Folk History”

By Jo-Brew and Pat Edwards

This book covers how the route for the Pacific Highway was determined through its use by Native tribes and later by trappers, miners and settlers who used portions of the California and Applegate Trails on their journeys, and eventually by the stage lines and the railroad. It also shows how each of the settlements along its route were formed and grew into prospering cities, small rural communities and some that are now ghost towns.
