Moro, OR – Sherman County: For the Record, the twice-yearly historical anthology published by Sherman County Historical Society, is in the mail to members. Copies of this and earlier issues may be purchased at The Museum Store in the Sherman County Historical Museum in Moro, open daily from ten until five.
The first of four parts of The Adobe Point Kid, part of an autobiography by Harold Brown will make readers chuckle. Former principal C.A. “Bill” Hockett puts perspective on historic Wasco area school district mergers. Who knew that the plans and plat for the town of Zola existed? Who remembers that the plat for the town of Kenneth was part of the selection of the county seat. An 1898 description of Moro published in The Dalles Times-Mountaineer will be of interest to residents and former residents. Nora Morrow’s 1890s autograph album is sweet. The sad story of hard times and tragedies of the homesteading O’Sullivan family is an example of those who came with vision of free land and left in despair and disappointment.
When you pick up your copy of For The Record at The Museum Store check out the inventory of Sherman County t-shirts, toys, wonderful gifts and so much more.
