Beekman House 1932 Living History Tour

JACKSONVILLE, OR – You may think that life is difficult in 2017, but other gernerations had their challenges, too!  Historic Jacksonville, Inc. provides a glimpse into Southern Oregon life during the Great Depression of 1932 with our Beekman House Museum Living History tours on Saturday, June 24.

Experience 1932 Jacksonville as you interact with the Beekmans, family members, and friends as Ben and Carrie Beekman are closing up their 1873 home following their mother’s death.  They share comments on current affairs and reminisce about growing up in the late 1800s.  New York Governor Franklin Roosevelt is running for President.  Groucho Marx is on the radio.  Miners are digging up Jacksonville streets in hopes of finding any residual gold. Hobos are hoping for hand outs.

Tours are offered at Noon, 1:30 and 3pm, at Jacksonville’s historic Beekman House, 470 E. California.  Admission: $8, adults; $5, seniors/students.  541-245-3650 or info@historicjacksonville.org
