About the Event

We are excited to announce a new temporary exhibit at the Heritage Museum, created by our curator Amy Christensen.

Step back in time with the Albert Clinton Moore Collection, a treasured donation from Elizabeth Callahan and Rosemary Carlsen, granddaughters of Albert and Rose Moore.

Through the lens of Albert Moore's photography, you can view life in Independence, Oregon in the early twentieth-century. Moore skillfully captured tender family moments shared between himself, Rose, and their children, Ramona and Dan. As Mayor and a successful Main Street entrepreneur, Moore played a vital role in Independence history. This legacy of civic engagement extended to his daughter Ramona, who supported and contributed to the Heritage Museum during her life.

The items on display include Rose Moore’s elegant 1904 wedding dress, mercantile goods from Moore’s store, and personal effects spanning the 1900s to the 1930s. Each artifact tells a part of the Independence story, including education, economic trade, social connections, and enduring family bonds.

We hope you will join us at the open reception to immerse yourself in the genuine moments preserved within the Albert Clinton Moore Collection.
