The Street Where You Live

A rose by any other name would smell as sweet, of course, but I was recently reminded that many residents of Tualatin have no idea of the significance of their street’s name. The granddaddy of the old roads was Boones Ferry Road, starting at the ferry in Wilsonville (of course there was no Wilsonville then) stretching to Portland on the north via Galbreath Ferry and Salem on the south.

  1. Great article. Many of the people that you mention in your article are people that are relatives or friends of my grandparents. The picture of Bill and Ora Barngrover is the first time that I have seen a picture of my great grandmother. What a great picture. I would like to get a copy of it. Is there a way that I can do that.


  2. It is John Nyberg and Ora Barngrover.

    I sent you a photo of Catherine and John Barngrover. Did you get it, and is this what you want?
