Book: Images of America Forest Grove
Images of America Forest Grove by Terrence G Popravak Jr. and Sean M. Popravak.
Forest Grove, one of the first settlements in the Oregon Territory, owes its name to its many varieties of trees. The rich soil and plentiful creeks made the area perfect for growing crops, and the abundant forests would provide a future lumber industry. However it wasn’t until the community combined their efforts and built a log-cabin school house, that Forest Grove really began to take shape. The cabin would eventually become Pacific University, drawing hundreds and causing the small group of local farmers and loggers to swell, creating an education boom town. This book uses beautiful high-resolution images to tell the story of how Forest Grove came to be the thriving city it is today.
Book: Images of America: Beaverton
Images of America: Beaverton by Colleen Medlock.
From the first land claim in 1847 to the growing technology industry of the 21st century, the city of Beaverton, Oregon, has had an impressive history. The earliest inhabitants were the Atfalati, a Native American tribe who dubbed the area Chakeipi, or the “Place of the Beaver.” When modern settlers began to arrive in the mid-1800s, they continued to refer to the area as “Beaverdam,” often draining the dams to aid their farming of the rich soil that remained. Since the 1950s, a growing number of high-tech companies have operated here, earning Beaverton a spot on the roster of places that comprise Washington County’s Silicon Forest.

Washington County Native American Seasonal Round Map
The Museum recently completed research and developed a map in consultation with tribal members from the Grand Ronde that identifies areas of historic significance to the Atfalati or “Tualatin” band of the Kalapuya within Washington County.
The map juxtaposes the general locations of spring, summer and fall camp locations, and winter villages of the Tualatin over a current map of Washington County. The map illustrates what a seasonal lifestyle looked like in Washington County and the general areas where Tualatin family groups lived and traveled to collect resources important to their culture as well as their survival.
The map is currently on display in the “This Kalapuya Land” exhibit.
Resource maps are also available for sale as a teaching tool.
Maps are $10.00 plus shipping and may be ordered by clicking the Pay Pal button. The maps will be available for purchase at the Museum Gift Store Monday- Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Please call in advance if you wish to purchase several maps so we can have them ready for you to pick up.
