Join historian Larry Mullaly for a lecture on pioneer rancher Michael Hanley and his friends. This sixth lecture in the Windows in Time local history series will be given Wednesday, June 7 at the Medford Branch Library, 205 South Central Avenue, and Wednesday, June 14at the Ashland Branch Library, 410 Siskiyou Boulevard, from 12 noon – 1:00 p.m. at both locations.
The name of pioneer rancher Michael Hanley was writ large during the early settlement period of Jackson County. The illustrated presentation places Michael Hanley in the social and business environment of his time, describing his relationships with the broader community during a period of dynamic change, 1852 -1889. It also describes how much of this legacy is still preserved in the iconic Hanley Farm home near Jacksonville.
