Dorena Historical Society

An Early Photo

This is one of the earliest Dorena area photos I have encountered. ¬†It dates from the 1890’s. It shows the first teacher at Dorena School, Mrs. Emma Damewood, and some of her students. Dorena was not even named until 1899. ¬†Before then it was referred to as Chrisman after the family that donated the land for the school.
