Admission to the gathering is $5 for individuals, $10 for families and $15 for groups. EOU students receive a discount and will pay just $3 per person and $10 for groups.Maxville was built in 1923 by a Missouri logging company and closed in the 1930s. Many of its residents were African American loggers who relocated with their families from the south to northeastern Oregon.
EOU’s Multicultural Center and Career Center are partnering with Maxville Heritage to develop student internships that help build career readiness skills in areas like public policy, cultural outreach, history, social media and communications. The new program begins in the fall.
