What’s New

Next OAS General Meeting January 2, 2018 at OMSI.

Our special guest speaker will be Dr. Tom Connolly
from the  University of
Oregon, on
“Archaeology of a Pioneer Family

Cemetery in Western Oregon, 1854-1879.”

Mid-to late-19th century burial patterns of ornamentation and hardware follow a general trend in American cemeteries from coast to coast. This cemetery is a noteworthy example of this synchronicity. Dr. Tom Connolly will discuss and illustrate such burial patterns during the decades following American settlement of the Willamette Valley by Oregon Trail pioneers.
