A train at the bottom of Estacada Lake, a famous hotel with an undercover secret, a huge fire that destroyed everything except the outhouses — Estacada has seen it all. These and other fascinating stories from Estacada’s past are contained in the second professionally published volume on the area’s history.
Based on interviews with residents willing to share their family’s backgrounds, the pages of this volume capture unrecorded stories, and display previously un-published photographs and artifacts related to the stories. Included is an expanded look at some previously collected stories.
Packed with tales of trials and triumphs, Estacada Sagas is full of colorful, historic details. This book is about the Estacada area between 1840 and 2000, with first-hand experiences as well as stories handed down from as far back as five generations.
Some tales are funny, others are poignant, many are inspiring, but all of them will entertain as they bring our history alive.
