A Pictorial History of the Lane Family Legacy

This is a sort of continuation of what was in our last Umpqua Trapper (Fall 2012 issue).  This page will have color photos of some of those that were used in the Trapper.  It will also have some photos that did not make it into the Trapper.

Remember the goal of this particular issue was to celebrate the gifts given from the Moore family to the Roseburg area, and to the Douglas County Historical Society.  We urge you to visit the Floed Lane House and view personally these items on these pages.

The Floed-Lane House
544 SE Douglas Avenue, Roseburg, Oregon
