Event Description

Named for President Andrew Jackson, Jackson County was created in 1852, the twelfth county created in Oregon. Wouldn’t it be interesting to learn, first hand, what this young County experienced during its early years? Researcher and Historian Mary Tsui has been transcribing Jackson County Commissioners’ minutes from the first 20 years, 1852-1874. December 3, Mary will share what’s she’s learned at the Four Daughters Irish Pub in downtown Medford. For instance, did you know that 150 years ago Jackson County was multi-cultural, residents were obsessed with transportation of all kinds, or that the County was “awash in liquor”? Join Mary as she tells you more about Jackson County’s early, day-to-day operations.

“Nuggets from the Archives,” the December 3 presentation, begins at 7pm, upstairs at the Four Daughters Irish Pub, 126 West Main. Talks last about an hour, with ample time to ask questions afterwards. First Tuesdays Pub Talks are a series of free, monthly historical talks sponsored by the Southern Oregon Historical Society.
