[edit] Lane County

  • Three railroad lines in the study area date to the period between 1891 and 1900: the route

leading from Coburg to Springfield and Natron, the Brownsville spur and the Wendling line. Historical records indicate that the Brownsville spur is now an abandoned railroad bed, and present-day maps indicate that the Wendling route has been expanded since its construction in 1900. The Coburg to Springfield and Natron has remained a functional line.

[edit] Springfield

  • Later in the 1890s, the Oregon and California Railroad Company built the Brownsville spur, another north-south line that connected the Woodburn route to the Springfield area. It was sold in 1927 to Southern Pacific (Neill 1990:2).
  • In the 1890s, aside from the general stores and services that provided the necessities, Springfield boasted two hotels, two undertaking parlors, and two real estate-insurance businesses. There were two photographers, a travel agent, two druggists, and a physician (Obenauer 1892:161-169).
