ELKTON — Behind the Elkton Community Education Center and just down the hill is a reminder that Oregon territory was once home to an entirely different world.
Elkton celebrates its colorful and historic past over the Labor Day weekend with Fort Umpqua Days at the Elkton Community Education Center. They have planned a wide range of historically-themed activities.
Every year, family members and friends run together past blooming flowers and along the banks of the Umpqua River. For Bud Palmer of Drain and his family, the Butterfly Run at the annual Blooms & Butterflies event in Elkton has become a family tradition.
