Rogue River Map.

Postby Ahusk » Mon Dec 30, 2019 10:01 pm

For Christmas this year I received the most unexpected and welcome of gifts. My sister in law found this pristine map in her deceased father's map collection and had it framed as a Christmas present to our family. The copyright is 1971 which is just three years after the Rogues designation as a Wild and Scenic River. For a Rogue fanatic such as myself it was a pretty cool and meaningful gift. Now I just have to find a place to hang it out of the sunlight. If anyone knows any of the history of it I would love to learn more.

The only thing I can find on it is at this link.

It also has a better picture of one. Since I don't seem to have the ability to get a decent picture.

Sweet. Is it to big to put in a glass covered table top?

A coffee table would be a neat way to display it. Unfortunately I think it would make it very difficult to keep it out of sunlight.
