Our Town 100 Years Ago: June 1922 Part I
June 8, 2022
June 1896 in the Jefferson Valley: Whitehall is a growing community, and everyone is eagerly awaiting the official start of summer. But rain is making the rivers rise and threatening cropland. Nationally, there are questions about election results in Oregon, a severe storm in St. Louis has left 120 people missing, our government was calling for stricter surveillance of meat being imported into the U.S., and a cannery is burned to the ground by militants in Astoria, Oregon. The local news items are taken as written from the June 5 and 12, 1896 editions of the Jefferson Valley Zephyr.
