Riverwalk: DeFazio-Greenway Bridges

August 25, 2005

Local historian Doug Card told us about some of the early river and Eugene history, from the pre-contact native people whose population had already been drastically reduced by 1770 because of diseases brought by European ships and explorers. He showed us the remnants of the first Ferry Street Bridge and showed us where it is thought Eugene Skinner’s cabin really stood and where his farms and orchards were. Because of time constraints, we didn’t even cross the river. Participants were Max Brown, Jean Coberly, Marcia Cutler, Jim Duncan, Sharon Duncan, Margo Fetz (leader), Milly Houghton, Lana Lindstrom, Barb Revere and Marian West.
