THIS EVENT HAS BEEN CANCELLED.
History and Hops: Little Belle Crosses the Oregon Trail with Nancy Anderson.
Belle Rinehart Ferguson, MD was one of the first female doctors in Oregon. Belle was just a toddler when she was brought West by her parents in 1863 on the Oregon Trail. They settled first in the Willamette Valley and then moved to The Dalles. Belle ultimately practiced medicine in several Oregon locations, finally retiring in Seaside.
Oregon native and Gearhart resident, Nancy Anderson, will tell her Great Aunt Belle’s story, based on Belle’s own written account of her life. Anderson’s daughter, Heather Bell Henry, will join her—creating a five generation span of history.
Nancy Anderson is the Director & founder of the Knappton Cove Heritage Center, a museum housed in 1912 US Public Health Service lazaretto/pesthouse on the site of the historic Columbia River Quarantine Station at Knappton Cove. She is an author, free-lance craft designer and former elementary school teacher. Her passion is Historic Preservation & Interpretation.
More information will be added as received.
