MYRTLE CREEK — Volunteers go about their business every week in an old building in downtown Myrtle Creek, that houses the St. Vincent de Paul Society, helping to feed and clothe local residents who are struggling to make ends meet.
Roseburg’s been growing slow and steady since 2010, slower than most Oregon cities, but faster than most other cities within Douglas County.
Covered bridges boast much beauty and history and there are a total of six in Douglas County. Two of those six are in the Myrtle Creek area: Neal Lane Bridge and Horse Creek Bridge. Take a drive, pack a picnic and explore some of South County’s historic landmarks.
