Key Note Address

Around Oregon: Trains
by Darrell Jabin, Oregon’s Traveling Historian

The unmistakable whistle and the plume of steam meant that communities throughout the state were soon going to change. Towns were created, named and grew, shrunk or moved due to the railroad. Streetcars and trolleys served one of Oregon's largest events and changed how people traveled to and from work and places of amusement. In this informative and entertaining keynote presentation, Darrell Jabin, Oregon’s Traveling Historian, shares his research on Oregon railroads and the people who built them. Darrell has been producing videos and doing presentations since 2009. He has done over 200 presentations in more than 40 cities throughout the northwest.
