66th Street (Springfield)

From Lane Co Oregon

  • A small schoolhouse was built near the corner of South Seventh and B Streets, and although considered to be a “crude building,” the school served the community until the 1880s (Graham 1978a). Two schools dating to this early period reportedly operated in the Thurston area. The Davis School was a one-room schoolhouse at the east end of Thurston on the Nelson Davis claim. It was not noted in 1855 on the first federal survey map of the region. Thurston Elementary was built in the 1860s on the northeast corner of 66th and Thurston Road in Springfield and it operated until the 1930's. (Jones 1958:32).
  • A general store owned by T.L. Rees was located on the southeast corner of the intersection of Thurston Road and 66th Street in the 1890s.
