Four Years of Progress
It’s been four years since the first settlers boarded the boat in Portland, Oregon and set sail into the unknown. Since the first crude log cabins were erected on SorGun Harbor, the region has seen plenty of growth and development. The small communities of Materburg and Junction have sprouted since then as well. Let’s take a look at this thriving little region as it stands in 1855.
The forests immediately surrounding Materburg are also being pushed back, giving new arrivals a chance to build homes and start their new life.
Some of the early farmers in Materburg have done quite well for themselves.
Small cottages are giving way to multi-story farmhouses and outbuildings.
Before we move on, here is a quick overview of Materburg at the end of 1855.
It has been a big year for the bustling town of New SorGun. In order to accommodate more shipping, the town pooled their resources over the past winter and built a proper pier.
Now, New SorGun has become a regular stop for ships passing up and down the western coast of the US.
The increase in visitors has been a boon for business in town.
The Walker Family has done very well for themselves, their farmland is slowly being developed and has given rise to the first 3 story buildings in the entire region.
The lumber business has also been very productive. The logging camps across the harbor have built permanent workers cabins to house all the loggers working in the surrounding forests.
During the day, the area is bustling with activity.
Finally, a look at the progress New SorGun has made over the past 4 years.
