Hidden History is a monthly lecture series at The History Museum. We’ll delve into the less obvious aspects of historical topics, investigate unexpected stories, and discover the myriad ways that we can learn about the past.
For 100 years, Oregon State Parks have provided spaces for recreation and enjoyment in various natural environments across the state. In celebration of the centennial of the state parks system, the Oregon Historical Society commissioned photographer Peter Marbach to document the beauty and geographic diversity of many of Oregon’s 254 state parks. From Vista House in the Columbia River Gorge to the crashing waves at Shore Acres State Park to climbers ascending a wall at Smith Rock State Park, this exhibit highlights numerous ways that Oregon State Parks have preserved natural and historic sites for Oregonians and visitors to appreciate for many years to come.
Join us for the opening reception for Century of Wonder and Hidden History lecture by the artist, Peter Marbach.
