For the next installment of the Our Town series, we'll focus on a city that was destroyed in a flood 65 years ago: Vanport.
Our Town: Roseburg
Roseburg, Oregon is a city of 21,790 in the southwestern part of the state. It's within 100 miles of three of the state's national forests, which is why its history is so closely entwined with the that of the timber industry. After World War II, Roseburg was known as the Timber Capitol of the Nation, due to the abundance of Douglas Fir lumber produced in and around the small city.
