Third Tuesday Author: Marylou Colver
On October 16, join local author Marylou Colver as she shares the quirky anecdotes of Lake Oswego’s past. In the twentieth century, visionary real estate developers touted Oregon’s Lake Oswego as an ideal place to “live where you play,” a reputation the city maintains today. But this playful paradise is a far cry from the small town developed by iron company entrepreneurs in the nineteenth century. Colver, founder of the Lake Oswego Preservation Society, chronicles the transition from gritty to pretty by recounting the people and events that shaped Lake Oswego.
