The Stories of Southern Oregon project celebrates heritage agriculture, the timber industry, mining, and the mills with video family histories of the region's folks, fields, forests and foods and also photographs, documents, and other ephemera. These materials give texture, context, and nuance to Southern Oregon's history, the families that have lived there, and shared cultural traditions.
