The Life and Times of Opal Whiteley- Guided Tour

Join us at noon on Saturday, June 19th for a guided caravan tour of Opal Whiteley’s life and places– with Steve Williamson, a local expert on Opal Whiteley. Steve has done lots of research on her and our local history. See the Opal memorial website here to learn more about this famous pioneer girl.

Join our Opal Caravan for a fun drive and walking tour of places where Opal Whiteley lived and wrote about. We will start in historic downtown Cottage Grove and travel to Walden, where she wrote her famous diary. You will also get to see sites where famous movies like Animal House, The General and Stand By Me were filmed. Find great places to hike or bike along the beautiful Row River Trail. The Caravan will last at least an hour.

Meet at the Snapp House at 360 S. River Rd, Cottage Grove, OR 97424. Park in the main lot and pay your fee, and receive your map, then follow Steve!

Cost: $10 per adult, children 15 and under are free.

Please bring cash or a check made out to Singing Creek Educational Center. The funds from this event helps support our living history programming for families and we thank you for any additional amount you can contribute.
