items: buy a coffee mug, a brick, a calendar, notecards, even copies
of local historian Ernst Lau's books. You can donate goods, professional
services, even building materials. If you own a business you might
want to talk to us about a sponsorship. There's
lots to do and we appreciate all contributions, large and small.
Your gift counts three times! If you make a tax-deductible gift now to the Santiam Heritage Foundation, and then by December 31, 2008 make a matching gift to the Oregon Cultural Trust, you will receive a 100% income tax credit (up to $500 for individuals, $1,000 for couples or $2,500 for corporations). You get half of your combined contribution back – and a federal tax deduction – while supporting Oregon’s many cultural programs!

Waterways of Stayton: traces the history of industrial
waterpower resources in early Stayton and the major figures
who built them. Two major diversions of the North Santiam River
east of the town site provided hydropower for early Stayton
industries and caused the new town to prosper. The first, in
1857, was the Salem Ditch and the second, begun in 1866 by
the Drury S. Stayton family, was the Stayton Ditch. This fascinating
and comprehensive account is filled with historic photos, documents
and maps that truly make history come alive. By Ernst Lau.

History of the North Santiam River Crossings:
begins with controversial accounts of early trails used by
the Mollala Tribe of Native Americans for trade with southern
peoples. This history of trade and transportation routes is
an account of the attempts–successes and failures–to
cross the North Santiam River at or near Stayton. As with The
Waterways of Stayton, many excellent and rare historic
photos illustrate the interesting text. By Ernst Lau. 43 pages.
