Wallowa city council members, from left, Red Evans, Vicki Knifong, Mayor Ron Philbrook, Ina Mae Dempsey and Kevin Silvera officially voted to accept the Wallowa Compound from the U.S. Forest Service in a special session last week.

City of Wallowa council members were presented with an official copy of the bill introduced by U.S. Senator Ron Wyden and signed into law by President Barack Obama transferring the Wallowa Forest Service Compound to the city.

The city in turn will lease the compound to the Maxville Heritage Interpretive Center. 

On Thursday, the Center hosts a regional fundraiser at the World Forestry Center in Portland. 

Grass-fed beef and traditional, regional foods that influenced the logging and homestead families from the southern and midwestern states will be served.

The evening starts with private admittance to the World Forestry Center Museum.

Guests will be treated to a sneak preview of three songs/scenes from the Center’s upcoming musical play, “On To Higher Ground.”

The play will have an introduction by playwright and musician, Marv Ross, as well as an introduction to the Center’s work preserving the multi-cultural railroad logging history of Maxville and similar towns in Oregon and the Pacific Northwest.

To purchase tickets or for more information visit www.maxvilleheritage.org or call 541-432-2419.
