  • Visit the house where once lived a young boy who would become the 31st president of the United States
  • See the home of an artist who helped create the comic book hero known as Captain America
  • Learn the location of the five-acre site where Newberg was supposed to be but never developed
  • Tour Newberg’s historic Friends Cemetery, the final resting place of numerous Civil War veterans and the man whose heart valve invention has saved millions of lives
  • Hear about Newbergian Lynn Hinton of the Bellfountain Bells, arguably the most legendary high school basketball team in Oregon sports history
    …and much, much more.
