Visitors & Newcomers Guide

The Emerald Valley’s Hidden Gem



WELCOME TO

Creswell

By Mayor Richard Zettervall

On behalf of the 5,510 people who call Creswell home, I would like to welcome you to our “Friendly City." In the time that I have lived in Creswell I have come to understand that the real gem about Creswell is its friendly, caring people and small town atmosphere. It’s even in the City of Creswell’s Mission Statement, “... creating a safe, livable, attractive community with a unique small town atmosphere." Walk around Creswell to visit our shops and enjoy a meal or snack at one of our many restaurants or well-known Creswell Bakery. You’ll soon come to understand why Creswell has come to be known as "The Friendly City." Creswell was first settled in 1872 and was named after the Postmaster General of that time, John Creswell. Creswell soon became known as “Fruitlands” because of the many flourishing orchards, cannery, packing plant and fruit dryer that

sprang up prior to Creswell’s incorporation in 1909. Over time, the orchards faded and timber became the major industry. Today, with the close proximity to the larger cities of Eugene and Springfield, the majority of the working population now works outside of Creswell. We have a much lower cost of living, making Creswell a very desirable place to live, work, raise a family or retire to, like my wife and I did. Creswell is home to a Championship Golf Course which the University of Oregon calls home. If you brought your clubs, I hope you have time to play a round on our beautiful course. Due to the Coronavirus, at this time there is uncertainty surrounding what would be this year's 28th annual Fourth of July Celebration, but traditionally, it is what many call the biggest in Lane County. Our population triples on this

Take a walk at Garden Lake Park, shop the Farmers' Market, visit the library, or enjoy the Historical Museum. No matter what you do, enjoy yourself in our small town. What is it that makes Creswell a gem? It’s the friendliness of its people. They smile, greet you with a friendly handshake and make everyone feel welcome. It is my honor to serve as their mayor.

Professional photographer Bradley Cook, who works out of Flashbox Studio in Eugene, captured Chef Scott Pisani during a private “chef’s experience” dinner at his new restaurant “Pazzo” in January. Pisani’s passion and the launch of another new business on Oregon Ave. continued Creswell’s economic growth. Cook’s cover shot came on a Nikon D850 with a Nikon 105mm macro lens, set at ISO 100, shutter speed 1/200th, Aperture F32, Tripod, 30 shots focus-stacked with Focus step width-1. Creative Director Chelsea Greenway designed the cover. "I chose the font EloquentJFPro and All Round Gothic because it compliments the photo with its casual, yet classy feel". Contact Cook and his business partner, Robert Williams, at FlashboxEugene@gmail.com.

STORY BY ERIN TIERNEY PHOTOS BY BRADLEY COOK & ROBERT WILLIAMS (FLASHBOX STUDIO)

A

burly man with a bright smile, knuckle tattoos, a mouthful of expletives and a punk-rock playlist on full blast; at first glance, you’d think Scott Pisani is better suited in a Social Distortion mosh pit than in a kitchen mashing potatoes. Well, at first glance, you’re wrong. He’s actually quite suited for both. Chef Scott’s intensity is reflected in everything he does. As a man in his 30s who was given a 10% chance to live only a few years ago, he’s hellbent on living his life at 110% these days. For Pisani, that means making his lifelong dream to open a restaurant on Oregon Avenue a reality. Pazzo, “crazy” in Italian, is unlike any other place to dine in Creswell. It’s what he calls his

“five-star dive bar” experience: good food, without the pretension. Aesthetically, the dining room feels balanced and warm, dressed with food-like colors you can almost taste. The walls are painted a copper pot orange, accented with tomatillo green and eggplant purple. The paisley design that hugs the ceiling mirrors the tattoo on Pisani’s arm. It is an off-the-wall decor yet carefully curated, and pulled together in full by a black-and-white checkered floor. The tables are clustered intimately, creating space for food and conversation only. The metallic, glittery purple chairs are familiar and iconic in Creswell, like-new remnants from the former Joe’s Diner. In all, there’s room for 30 people, including window and bar seating.


leg cramp that ultimately left him in critical condition and only a 10% chance of living, according to doctors. The flesh-eating bacteria is called necrotizing fasciitis, and is so rare that “doctors said it is like winning the lottery and being struck by lightning simultaneously,” Chelsea said. “There was definitely no lottery,” Scott said. Recovery did not come easily, but it did come eventually. He underwent six intensive surgeries and two reconstructive surgeries on his leg before beating the odds. He still lives with a lot of pain, but it hasn’t stopped him from taking risks and living life at full speed. It's the place Chef Scott calls his second living “There is a lot of risk in owning a restaurant, room — somewhere to put down your phone, gather and experience cuisine and craft beer but we’ve already been to hell and back; for how much we fought for Scott’s health, “The Pisani Way.” As a man The Pisani Way is a fusion of global in his 30s who this is nothing in comparison,” Chelsea said.

Creswell's

Rich

History

Grew from its fertile land

I

n the mid-19th century, EuroAmericans poured into the Willamette Valley, taking advantage of the rich lands. Elijah Bristow claimed the first land in Lane County, near present-day Pleasant Hill. Other settlers quickly followed, claiming what they viewed to be the best property. In 1850, the Donation Land Act formalized and encouraged settlement in Oregon and granted 640 acres to each married couple who lived on and cultivated their claim. In 1857, the first schoolhouse in Lane County opened John – a small cabin near the Bristow residence where students were taught by W.W. Bristow, son of Elijah Bristow. Shortly after the school opened, the first church was constructed nearby. Before long, towns dotted the landscape of the upper Willamette Valley. The original site of the settlement of Creswell began a few miles east of present-day Cloverdale. By 1852, John Gilfrey operated a general store in Cloverdale and a post office served the surrounding community. When the plans for the location of the Or-

14

egon and California Railroad became known, many of the Cloverdale community moved west, across the Coast Fork of the Willamette River to a spot that railroad reached by 1871. In this year James Robinett and Alvin Hughes donated land to plat a town. In 1873, Ben Holladay of the Oregon and California Railroad named the town Creswell, after the U.S. Postmaster General at the time, John Creswell. Euro-American settlers in the area relied on agriculture and timber to make their living and the small town plugged away.

Creswell

The period from 1870 to 1909 saw gradual growth, with Creswell expanding to around 500 people. In 1873, the citizens of Creswell built their first church. Although the building was constructed to serve a Methodist congregation, multiple denominations held services in the building. In 1874, Creswell built its first public building, a schoolhouse, that would later also house the public library and Creswell Civic Improvement Club. Alvin Houghes donated the land for the school and C.P. Curren served as the first schoolteacher. The tworoom school building reflected the

CRESWELL VISITORS & NEWCOMERS GUIDE 2020–2021

growing population and the need for a spacious building. The building served as both the schoolhouse and a community gathering place where Christmas parties, Grange meetings, and band practices were held. To accommodate the growing population. Creswell built a new schoolhouse, and in 1900, the First Baptist Church of Creswell bought the original schoolhouse building. In 1909, A.C. Bohrnstedt, an enterprising businessman from the Midwest, came to town and helped initiate what is known as the Bohrnstedt Boom. Bohrnstedt saw the agricultural potential of the Creswell area and bought 1,400 acres of land, creating the A.C. Bohrnstedt Orchard Company. He then ordered 40,000 fruit trees to be planted that winter and made room for 77,000 more trees in his nursery. Bohrnstedt then began to advertise his land to investors in the east. For example, Bohrnstedt brought “excursion trains” of interested people to Oregon, with many passengers later buying property from Bohrnstedt and staying in the Creswell area. The Creswell Development League also helped to publicize by publishing a promotional booklet in 1909 touting the fertile fruit and nut land that surrounded Creswell. This booklet proclaimed, “It (Creswell) is a wide awake, bustling little community of about 500 in inhabitants and with an assured future…” By the end of 1909 Creswell’s population of 500 had increased 35 percent, and Bohrnstedt predicted the population to reach at least 1,200 by 1915.

FIRE CHIEF'S

Message By Chief John Wooten South Lane County Fire & Rescue

S

outh Lane County Fire & Rescue is proud to provide 24/7/365 service to the Creswell area. SLCFR provides fire protection to a 132-square mile area encompassing the cities of Creswell and Cottage Grove. The area served for EMS is over 800 square miles. In 2019 SLCFR handled over 4400 calls for service. The Creswell Station is staffed with two career members and up to two resident firefighters 24/7/365. The two on-duty career members are comprised of a Captain and an Engineer (both paramedics). As a result, response times and service delivery have been dramatically improved. Station 203 now handles an average of three to five calls per day. The District has an ISO rating of 2/4/10W, which is a significant improvement from the 5/9 we previously had. This means lower overall homeowner insurance premiums for Creswell, which is a Class 2 inside city limits. Some of our customers have reported up to $300 annual decreases in their homeowner insurance policies. SLCF&R has placed Creswell as the number-one priority for a new fire station. The new fire station will be placed on the site where the old Community Center now resides. The

S O U T H

L A N E

schematic designs for the new station will be rolled out in 2020. The new facility will be nearly 17,000 square feet and will have “Smart Building” technology including renewable energy. The station also houses an engine, water tender, two medic units, a Type 6 brush engine and a utility vehicle. The Board, staff and I appreciate the great support we get in the community and we look forward to improving service delivery whenever possible. Your SLCFR team works very hard to deliver the best possible service. Through improved partnerships with our neighboring agencies, we continue to improve the protection provided to Creswell. Our career, resident and reserve members are proud to serve you and will continue providing the highest quality service delivery possible.
