Underground History

Underground History is a regular monthly feature on the Jefferson Exchange. The segment spotlights little-known aspects of Oregon's history through the lens of archaeology and is produced in collaboration with the Southern Oregon University Laboratory of Anthropology. SOULA Director Chelsea Rose co-produces the segment.

  • This past summer Underground History did something a little different. In order to continue to explore ways in which we can connect our listeners to history and heritage, we decided to bring the show on the road!
  • October 11, 2023 marks the 100th anniversary of one of the most infamous crimes in Southern Oregon. This tale has train robbers, rumors of gold, dynamite, and all the intrigue of an old timey wild west crime overlaid on the backdrop of a rapidly modernizing world. Four innocent men brutally lost their lives on that day, and the ensuing manhunt captured the attention of the nation.
