Creswell’s rich history

I

N THE MID-19TH CENTURY, Euro-Americans 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. The act granted 640 acres to each married couple who lived on and cultivated their claim. In 1857, the first schoolhouse in Lane County opened – 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 Oregon 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 6

grew from its fertile land

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. 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 John Gilfrey Houghes donated the land for the school and C.P. Curren served as the first schoolteacher. The two-room school building reflected the 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

CRESWELL VISITORS & NEWCOMERS GUIDE 2019–2020

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 John Creswell example, Bohrnstedt brought “excursion trains” of interested people to Oregon, with many passengers later buying property from Bohrnstedt and staying in the Creswell area. 6 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.

The information on Creswell’s history was reprinted from a document submitted by Creswell Public Library and Civic Improvement Clubhouse through the United State Department of the Interior National Park Service, National Register of Historic Places Continuation Sheet.

Biking culture

contributes to Oregon’s economy By Aliya Hall 10

CRESWELL VISITORS & NEWCOMERS GUIDE 2019–2020


C

RESWELL IS KNOWN as “the

friendly city,” and it’s getting a lot friendlier with the addition of its first bike-friendly business. As of one week ago, Creswell Bakery has joined the 682 certified bike-friendly businesses statewide. “We already have groups of riders who love to come to the bakery,” co-owner Jon Tunnell said. “We like having them come by, and getting certified allows everyone to know that we are accommodating to cyclists.” This program is just one of the ways that Oregon has embraced its cycling culture. “Travel Oregon from the beginning has focused on bicycle tourism and I think that’s because we have a competitive advantage,” said Hilary Sager, destination development coordinator with Travel Oregon. “People were seeking out Oregon’s roads and trails while they were visiting here and we spent a lot of energy developing the bike-friendly business program and scenic bikeways program.”

“The bicycle-tourism industry is growing very quickly in Oregon, with both in-state and out-of-state visitors,” Tunnell said. “We think it’s very important to help make the bicycle experience great for our visitors. Travel Oregon’s statewide Bike-Friendly Business program is the first of its kind in the nation, which is exciting.” Bike-friendly businesses provide services and amenities that are helpful to cyclists, including places to park a bike, the ability to refill water bottles, bathrooms, wifi, air for tires, supplies, food and lodging without reservations. “This helps people going on rides to plan their trip and find places to stop,” he explained. Since the bakery is new to the certification, Tunnell said they aren’t sure of the impact yet, but that participation in the program was free.

ALONG WITH bike-friendly business certification, the City of Springfield has dedicated the month of May as “Bike Month,” offering activities, workshops Cycling has proven to be lucrative for and rides all month long. the state, generating $400 Events included a movie million for Oregon’s econnight, women’s ride and omy and $18 million in the ‘We think it’s very bicycle safety checks.

Creswell poised to become ‘Bicycle City’ By Al Bennett WHEN IT COMES TO CYCLING, Oregon has it all. And you don’t even need to leave our own Lane County to ride world-class roads, dirt singletrack and gravel. Creswell is becoming, if not yet a destination, then certainly part of the ride. Not only is Creswell “The Friendly City,” but it is poised to become “The Bicycle-Friendly City.”

Local businesses are seeing the value of cycling. Creswell Bakery is getting into the game by becoming the first Creswell business to be recognized as a certified bike-friendly business (see adjoining story). But the most exciting local development is a bicycle rest stop planned for the northeast corner of Cloverdale and Dale Kuni roads. The city of Creswell has owned the half-acre lot – it was donated by The Reserve, the gated development to the north, as part of its open space requirement – since 2007. That parcel has sat vacant in the ensuing dozen years. “But what tipped the scales on us talking about it as a bike rest stop was that the Cycle Oregon tour came through in the last two years, and they used Emerald Valley as a stopping point to provide a rest station for cyclists on the tour,” said Creswell City Planner Maddie Phillips. “It piqued everyone’s interest about a popular bike ride down Sears Road to Cottage Grove and the Row River Trail, and we thought, ‘Hmm, wouldn’t that be a neat way to attract and help out bicyclists.’” Car parking would have gobbled up a significant portion of the lot, but as a bike-dedicated space, that need is eliminated. With full use of the parcel, amenities will include bike racks, water/ bottle refill station, shelter with picnic tables, benches and a bike repair stand. Shade trees will be planted to protect riders from the hot summer sun. A restroom, which is the most expensive part of the project, is not in the initial design but can be accommodated with future funding. Final design elements and layout are being put in place, and the project is slated to be completed this fall. “It’s parkland on a busy road with fast traffic. It’s not a good place to put a park to entertain young children,” said Phillips, herself an avid cyclist.

CRESWE 4TH OF Creswell Chamber of Commerce presents annual Fourth of July Celebration: More than just a community celebration By Mike Rothgeb

C 541-746-1583

www.epud.org Board: Ron Davis, Brandon Jordan, Kevin Parrish, Brian Parker, Patti Chappel

Starting at 7 a.m. in Harry Holt Memorial Park, the day begins with the Chamber’s famous Pancake Breakfast. This breakfast event featuring pancakes, eggs, ham, strawberries, coffee and orange juice helps fund future celebrations, and is a great way to fuel up for the day ahead. Diners can enjoy live, local music while waiting in line and eating their meal. Pancake Breakfast preparation begins weeks in advance, and volunteers arrive as early as 5:30 a.m. to set up chairs, tables, grills and food in anticipation of about 1,000 diners.

individuals makes up a tight-knit community of old-fashioned values in southern Lane County. Every year, the Creswell Chamber of Commerce, residents and local businesses host an event known throughout Lane County as the best place to be while celebrating the birth of our great nation. The Annual Fourth of July Celebration is a special time when the Creswell community comes together to enjoy each other’s company, live music, local vendors, an impressive Independence Parade and, to top it all off, a fireworks show. Creswell marked its 26th celebration this summer and the reception couldn’t have been better. In the weeks leading up to the Fourth of July, the Creswell Chamber of Commerce worked tirelessly to plan, coordinate and organize upcoming festivities. During the Fourth of July Celebration, the City of Creswell’s population spikes from 5,000 residents to easily 20,000 men, women and children from all across the state of Oregon. Every Fourth of July Celebration is made possible by Creswell Chamber of Commerce members, local business participation and support, and the dedication of Creswell community volunteers.

BREAKFAST ORGANIZER and local veterinarian, Dr. Sheri Schlorman, other Creswell Chamber members and volunteers work around the clock to prepare for this event. Lines for breakfast are shorter earlier in the day, so it’s a good idea to arrive before 9 a.m. Breakfast is no longer served after 10 a.m. as cleanup takes place before the parade starts at 11 a.m.

Live music takes place in Holt Park from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and features many local performers, including the Oregon Tube Ensemble, One More Time Marching Band and many more. The local music has

STOP BY EARLY on July 4 to reserve a spot in line for the Chamber of Commerce’s Pancake Breakfast in Holt Park and along the parade route. Stick around after the parade to enjoy local vendors, music and family activities while waiting for traffic to clear up. Spectators may not place chairs on sidewalks until 24 hours before the parade. Chairs must not block the sidewalk, access to businesses and driveways, and must allow adequate space for pedestrians and American Disability Act accessibility. Free parking is available at Creslane Elementary, Creswell Middle and High schools and across the freeway at Emerald Valley Golf & Resort. Barricades block off the parade route starting at 10 a.m., one hour before the start of the parade. Be sure to arrive early and follow all signs for detours and parking locations.

received wide praise in past years and many even enjoy dancing after the parade’s conclusion. CRESWELL’S INDEPENDENCE PARADE is

a true patriotic tradition as individuals, businesses and organizations drive and march their way through downtown Creswell. Over 80 entries take part each year. The parade draws participants from Creswell, Cottage Grove, Pleasant Hill and all over Lane County. To kick off each Fourth of July parade, Experimental Aircraft Association Chapter 31 pilots fly over Creswell in their vintage aircraft in a demonstration of patriotism. Most years, military F-16 fighter jets have also flown above the parade route. Beginning in 2018, the Creswell Chamber addressed two issues that crop up every Independence Day: parking and traffic. This past year, Creswell offered a shuttle service from downtown to Emerald Valley Golf & Resort, across Interstate 5. Not only did this shuttle service ease congestion and address limited parking along the parade route, it also provided a free ride to Creswell’s Firecracker Vintage Car Show at Emerald Valley. Also across the highway, children enjoy free Young Eagles airplane rides hosted by EAA Chapter 31 pilots at Creswell Airport. At dusk, the celebration is far from over. Residents and visitors enjoy an amazing light

show released between Creslane Elementary School and Creswell High School after sundown. The Creswell Chamber encourages spectators to arrive around 6:30 p.m. to set up chairs and enjoy picnic dinners in anticipation of the fireworks show. There are over 200 parking spots available at the elementary and high schools, so grab a shady spot while supplies last. Between 9:45 p.m. and 10 p.m., the show begins courtesy of Western Display Fireworks and runs for approximately 30 minutes. Security is available throughout the day to assist with directions, safety concerns and lost children. Porta potties are also available at the elementary and high school for visitor convenience. FROM INDEPENDENCE DAY PARADES

to antique car shows, Creswell’s Annual Fourth of July Celebration has it all. Visit the Creswell Chamber of Commerce office at 95 W. Oregon Ave. or www.creswellchamber.com for more information about upcoming events. THE CRESWELL CHAMBER OF COMMERCE:

for more information on how to take part in future Creswell community events. The Creswell Chamber welcomes all to stop by their office across from City Hall at 95 W. Oregon Ave. for questions, suggestions and volunteer opportunities. More information about all upcoming events within the Creswell community is available at www.creswellchamber.com. Besides the Creswell Fourth of July Celebration and the Annual Tree Lighting Celebration in early December, the small town also hosts a Creswell Community-Wide Yard Sale in May that attracts visitors from all over Lane County.

THE CITY OF CRESWELL and Creswell Chamber of Commerce are always looking to add other events throughout the year. Local business participation is strongly encouraged, and volunteers are welcome to help organize and set up the events.

The Creswell Chamber of Commerce welcomes local business owners and non-business members to attend Chamber meetings to assist with new events and address concerns.

Creswell proper is the center of amazing natural and recreational activities. Within just 90 minutes, Creswell residents and visitors can reach the Pacific Ocean, the foothills of the Cascades, delicious blueberry farms, bike paths and incredible waterfalls and trails. Creswell also is the gateway to Oregon wine country. And, of course, the MCKENZIE VALLEY and SWEET CREEK FALLS areas. Maybe the most famous of the old McKenzie River lodges is The Log Cabin Inn in McKenzie Bridge. The first Log Cabin Inn was built in the 1880s, served as a stagecoach stop, burned down in the early 1900s and was rebuilt in 1906. The new Log Cabin Inn operated for 100 years before it too burned to the ground on March 29, 2006. The fire destroyed the DRIVE TIMES FROM CRESWELL TO …

Indeed, the number of natural features created by Lane County’s geological history are among the wonders of our great state. The eastern part of the county is shaped by several still-active volcanoes, and a couple of popular natural hot springs and miles of lava beds continue as reminders of that past. To the west, the massive tectonic forces of the Cascadia Subduction Zone have shaped the entire coastline from British Columbia to the California border.

A path from the SWEET CREEK TRAILHEAD takes you along a bit of beautiful

trail that is within most people’s capabilities. On the easy waterfall hike, mossy rocks, ferns, a lush canopy of Douglas fir, alder and bigleaf maple trees and the cascading creek give the narrow canyon walk a very wilderness feel. Take Highway 126TO westSWEET from Eugene;CREEK it’s about GETTING 46 miles to Mapleton. Just before you drive over the Siuslaw River Bridge In Mapleton, turn left onto Sweet Creek Road and follow the road signs. There are no fees and no permit is necessary to visit Sweet Creek. You will find a paved parking lot and a Forest Service restroom at the trailhead lot, but no other services and camping is not allowed.

It began to be called Sweet Creek in about 1880. In this area, the coastal mountains are tiered and the creek cascades out of an inaccessible upper canyon down a series of waterfalls called the Sweet Creek Falls. There are 11 falls in total; the biggest range from 10 to about 30 feet tall. From the upper falls down to the Sweet Creek trailhead the creek tumbles a total of 70 feet. The creek has become famous for the steel catwalks attached to the canyon walls and hanging directly over the water in some places. A midwinter visit to the creek, flush with water, truly is thrilling. Though miles from the coastline, the area consists of mudstone, sandstone and an occasional basalt flow. All these types of rock are found on the seafloor of the Pacific Ocean, brought to the surface by the North American continental plate which has been moving westward across the Pacific, about an inch a year for tens of millions of years. About 30 million years ago, a chunk of Pacific seafloor buckled up in front of the

Sweet Creek Falls is a series of 11 small waterfalls, the highest being about 30 feet.

ADVENTURE – continued from 19 westward-drifting continent; it pushed up from the sea bottom and became land, creating Oregon’s coastal mountain range and the terrain you see along the Sweet Creek Falls Trail. Candis Haley, of Florence, Oregon, was part of the Forest Service crew that surveyed the area for the trail built in the early ‘90s. The steepness of the canyon, she said, “proved to be interesting” and a challenge, so the Forest Service hired a rock climber to rappel the cliffs to get the measurements that were needed for the trail survey. One day, the climber put on his gear, had his feet firmly planted, leaned back and fell out of sight, his rope slipping from its anchor. Haley said that she and her crew boss were left breathless, terrified to look over the edge, but they did. Luckily, the climber had landed on his back about 10 feet down on a ledge. Haley and her boss were able to pull him back up, pretty bruised but not seriously injured. Needless to say, that was the end of that day. The current trail opened in the mid 1990s.

Always ready! In 1939,

our members wanted electricity across rural Lane County. Our committment and hard work made it so. Our members have asked, once again, for green, renewable energy. Today, the same committment and hard work answered the call. Why? Because it’s what Lane Electric does. We are there for our members and the communities we serve.

CYCLING continued from 11 “But if you wanted to provide refuge for cyclists it’s actually ideal.” The land is situated in a pivotal spot that intersects popular scenic and challenging routes in all directions: Sears Road to Cottage Grove to the south; through Creswell from Hamm

Road and the town of Lorane to the west; to the north, Dale Kuni Road, a comfortable alternative to part of narrow Highway 99 as riders travel to and from the Eugene area; and Cloverdale to Bear Creek roads, and idyllic backroads to Pleasant Hill, to the east.

A few other nearby areas have public bike repair stations, including a couple on the Row River Trail and one at the new Thurston Hills trails in Springfield, but Creswell will be the first city in Lane County to have parkland set aside specifically for road riders. That puts “The Friendly City” at the front of the pack.
