Fort Umpqua Opening

This afternoon we attended the opening ceremony for Fort Umpqua. This is a replica of the Hudson Bay Company’s trading post, Fort Umpqua that stood along the banks of the Umpqua River here in the Elkton area from 1836 to 1851. The new Fort Umpqua is located on the grounds of the Elkton Community Education Center on the west end of Elkton.
