Photo of the Week: Downtown Burns, Oregon

I’ll let the back of the postcard describe the scene:

Main Street, Burns, Oregon, center of Oregon cattle industry, and in the heart of Oregon’s best fishing and hunting country.

Here’s a bit of history on the town.

    I lived in Burns not too many years ago. It hasn’t changed too much from the above postcard. The building at far left, I believe, is now a theater, where I had one of the best movie-going experiences of my life. Forgot the movie, but the place was full, bustling, and kids were running up and down the aisles with their blinking shoes. It felt like a shared community experience. Now there is a Chinese restaurant in the “Wenzel” building, but again, only if I remember correctly.
    Burns had a homogenous social life and boring cultural events, but was wonderfully serene and polite. The outdoor reach was quite good, too.
