When We Were Young: Childhood Around the Valley
NOWA through Saturday, March 16, 2013.
What do you know about the lives of children who lived in the Willamette Valley in the past? What kinds of games did they play or chores
did they have to do? How did their lives and pastimes compare to yours? What did it even mean to be a “child”?
When We Were Young is the Center’s third annual Heritage Invitational, and explores a range of ideas about “childhood,” from planting trees after the Tillamook Burn to the role of children in the history of the Good Samaritan School of Nursing; from toys, dolls and games from a by-gone era to the lives of Albany teenagers from the late 1800s thru the 1940s.
