I must have thought being an English major was going to be more profitable than studying history but I keep my interest in history alive by looking for local historical info where I can find it. I’ve discovered that besides reconnecting with old friends and finding out who goes on the best vacations, Facebook also offers another perspective on the Portland and Oregon experience through various groups I’ve encountered through the site. If you need a first hand history fix or want to learn about places that used to be around consider liking the following groups on Facebook:
Hidden Portland for the Curious
Portland Pioneers of Color Walking Tours
All of these merit a separate blog entry which I hope to get to at a later date. In the meantime check it out. You can only imagine what obscure tidbit of information you might encounter.
