Donald, J.N.

From Lane Co Oregon

Conflicted stories state that by 1853, Springfield's first place of business had been established, a trading post operated by J.N. Donald, located near the corner of Mill and Main Streets. Descriptions of distances and locations in the early days were given in the number of chains and links from Donald's store.[1]
