Title

A visit to the original site of the Indian Training School in Forest Grove

Description

A group portrait of students and staff from Chemawa School, visiting the original site of the Indian Training School in Forest Grove, showing the remains of one of the school workshops in the background. At the time when this picture was taken, the school had been relocated to Salem and renamed Chemawa. In this photo are Edwin L. Chalcraft, second from right, and Alice P. Chalcraft, his daughter, seated in front with a white hat. Edwin Chalcraft was the superintendent of Chemawa School from 1894-1895 and 1904-1911. This photograph was probably taken around 1910, by which time both of the school's original dormitories had been destroyed, leaving only a few rickety outbuildings on the site of the former campus.

This image is a copy of an earlier version of the photograph. It is most likely based on an original lantern slide located in the Chalcraft-Pickering Photographs collection at the Washington State University Archives.
