I’ve been enjoying Foster Church’s Discovering Main Street: Travel Adventures in Small Towns of the Northwest. In the book, he profiles Oregon and Washington small towns and Main streets – with an eye on history, a mix of tourism (and definitely a reality check – not all small towns are charming while some have seen better days).
It’s a great read and it’s recommended.
Speaking of Oregon towns, this week’s photo is of downtown Mitchell, Oregon. Like the website says,
Mitchell is “…a small town populated with a singularly independent breed for whom conformity is a virtue only in one’s neighbor,” according to Tom Fitzgerald, lifelong resident of the area.
They have a great photo set of historical photos as well.
