Just in case there’s another rainy, gray afternoon before spring officially settles in, the Ear has a little something that should keep history buffs busy for hours (or days): the state of Oregon’s online History and Archeology Library (http://tinyurl.com/ORHisArc).
There is a lot of information about the history of Clatsop County, information on historic cemeteries, how to apply for Oregon grants — and the list goes on and on. Pictured, the cover of the “Adair-Uppertown Historic Inventory, Astoria, Oregon” by Jill A. Chappel.
There is so much to glean from the site the best thing to do is just jump in, click on a link and see where it takes you.
