Oregon's Fort Hoskins Commander's House Tour Set

From the May 16, 2012, Corvallis Gazette Times.

The tour was set for May 19th.

Fort Hoskins was constructed in 1857 by Lt. Philip Sheridan, later a famous Civil War general.  The post was built bu the U.S. Army to monitor Coastal Indian Reservations.

During the Civil War, it kept an eye out for Confederate sympathetic activity in the Willamette Valley.

The fort was abandoned in 1865 and placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1974.
