LIFE IN 1914

Life in 1914 is an entertaining and educational half-day program for children ages 8–12. Campers go back in time and behind the scenes to experience what life was like 100 years ago through engaging, hands-on activities.

The day begins with a tour of Pittock Mansion’s 23 treasure-filled rooms and areas not ordinarily open to the public like the servants’ quarters and basement. Campers then try their hand at turn-of-the-century skills, like how to do laundry without a washing machine, and how to write with old-fashioned dip pens!

WE GO UP: A HISTORY OF MOUNTAINEERING & MAZAMAS

Mathew Brock presents a glass lantern slide show that will speak broadly on the history of the Mazamas, mountaineering, and outdoor recreation in the Pacific Northwest. Using hand-colored slides from the 1920s and an original contemporary narration, the program will look back at over 125 years of history, dating back to before the founding of the Mazamas in 1894. The presentation is a collaboration between the Mazamas and the Oregon Historical Society and is hosted by Mathew Brock, Library & Historical Collections Manager at the Mazamas and Matthew Cowan, Archivist for Photography and Moving Images at the Oregon Historical Society.

Presented by Mazamas, Oregon Historical Society and Pittock Mansion.
