The Oregon Historical Society (1200 SW Park) is celebrating Oregon’s Statehood Day* by offering free admission on Sunday, February 13, 2011 from noon until 5pm:
Visit OHS for a free day in celebration of Oregon’s 152nd birthday. View our newest exhibit Perseverance: Black Pioneers in Early Oregon, and speak to representatives from the Oregon Northwest Black Pioneers. Take a walk through Walls of Heritage, Walls of Pride and Marking Time: Voyage to Vietnam, on their last day open in the museum. Children can investigate artifact replicas at our “What is it?” table.
At 2pm visitors can listen to a lecture by Kerry Tymchuk: “Laughing All the Way to the White House.” The celebration also includes birthday cake and frozen yogurt samples from Lucky Spoon Frozen Yogurt, while supplies last!
* Oregon’s birthday is actually Valentine’s Day, February 14. But OHS is closed on Mondays and celebrating Sunday ensures more people can participate anyway!
