Colorful Characters from Paisley's Past (Paperback)
Since the late 1800s, when settlers like Thomas Jefferson Brattain discovered the Chewaucan Valley, Paisley has fostered a pageant of colorful characters. In this entertaining history, Carolyn Silveria Pottorff brings these colorful characters to life. Carolyn includes narratives of her experiences growing up in Paisley during the 1940s and 50s, working in the restaurant at the old Chewaucan Hotel, and graduating from Paisley School. You'll read about tragedies like the Amburgey children who perished in a blizzard and Troy Lawson, a local hero who lost his life trying to protect the staff during the Post Office robbery in 1957. You'll laugh at the antics of cowboys, teenagers, and eccentric city residents who have made Paisley, Oregon such a lively place.
