Intimately set in the 1894 Queen Anne Victorian home of Deepwood
The women who made homes in the new settlement of Salem in the mid-nineteenth century arrived in Oregon after long, dangerous sea voyages or the hardships of the overland continental wagon journeys. All were headed toward futures they could not imagine. What economic or emotional needs had impelled them to leave home and families they might never see again? Unfortunately, as typical of women’s lives in those days, many did not survive childbirth, or became young widows. But there were also dramatic stories of heroic survivals, frontier adventure and a few became founding members of notable Salem families. Their names are remembered in places and institutions we are familiar with today. Virginia Green will profile lives of a few of these women who helped establish the early traditions of Salem.
ABOUT THE SPEAKER
This talk will be presented by Virginia Green of the Salem Heritage Network (SHINE). Virginia’s biography reads like a travelogue. Because of her father’s profession as a Methodist minister, the family moved every two or three years. Thus, Virginia had no “Home Town”. As a college student at UNC Chapel Hill, she met the man who would become her husband of 57 years ~ and continued travel during his 30 year career in the Marine Corps. In her own career as an American Studies teacher, she guided California eighth-graders to historic sites on the East Coast and in Europe. After retiring, Virginia and her husband spent many years researching their genealogies in the archives of Tennessee, North Carolina and Virginia.
In 1999, Virginia discovered Salem’s historical attractions and its natural beauty. She and her husband selected a home with views of the handsome Willamette River. After his death, her widowed son joined her as a next-door neighbor. They became partners in local historical research, producing blogs and self-guided walking tours, publishing Statesman Journal articles and creating KMUZ broadcasts. They recently participated in publishing a brochure guiding visitors to our cultural sites and events. They still enjoy traveling, but always feel pleasure in returning to Salem ~ Home at Last! To read some of her articles you can head to her blog Salem Lifelines.

We want children to experience the wonder of nature at our Earth Day scavenger hunt, part of our brand new kids’ program, Nature EDventures. We’ll take kids on a guided nature trail walk, visit the green house, and have other creative activities! Our goal is to get kids to think about Earth Day by experiencing nature in their own hands-on way. See you in the gardens!
