Break out the tie-dye, man.  It's the 60s again at the Southern Oregon Historical Society. 

SOHS is assembling a display called "Far Out: Southern Oregon in the 1960s," coming to the Woolworth Building in down Medford beginning in late March. It was a decade of significant change for the region: Interstate Five opened, the Shakespeare Festival began staging plays indoors, and JFK visited Medford on his way to the White House. 

Amy Drake of SOHS joins us for the word on which artifacts will best represent the time.
