JOSEPH, Ore. – The Maxville Heritage Interpretive Center, a non-profit organization dedicated to preserving the multicultural history of a once-thriving logging town north of Wallowa, is getting ready for its 7th annual Maxville Gathering in Joseph August 22.
Activities start at 10 a.m. and wrap up at 4 p.m. New this year is a lumberjack show, and there will be live music, a mule-hauled tour of the homeland site and opportunities to learn about historical logging, native salmon and local foods. Camping is free with both RV’s and tents welcome.
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.
