The City of Milwaukie is proud to announce the completion of a project which attempts to capture the people’s history of Kellogg Lake.
The Oral History of Kellogg Lake uses background research and interviews with long-time Milwaukie residents to tell the story of the Lake and the role it played in the lives of some residents.
The document tracks the Lake’s evolution; from early settlement when it was originally dammed to provide power to the Old Standard Mill, through the first half of the 20th century when it was a cherished skating pond and a place where children still dared to swim, to the last 60 years of it’s steady decline and the ongoing citizen efforts to maintain its scenic integrity and habitat.
The entire report can be read via the link below or can be found at the Milwaukie Museum/Historical Society, the Ledding Library, and the Clackamas County Family History Society.
To add your memories of Kellogg Lake, obtain a hard copy of the final report, or for more information about the project, please contact Kenny Asher at firstname.lastname@example.org or 503-786-7654.
