The group proceeded under the I-205 bridge, up to the West Linn Police Station, across the Oregon City-West Linn Arch Bridge, to the Oregon City municipal elevator overlooking the Willamette Falls. All along the way, Shepherd shared facts and stories of the history of the area.

The next Centennial Heritage Walk is set for Feb. 2, meeting at 9 a.m. at Willamette Primary School, 1403 12th St.
