Gwen served on the Oregon State Advocacy Commission of Black Affairs for 5 years, and currently serves on the State Historic Preservation Committee.

About History Pub
All McMenamins locations are open for take-out, including food, beer, wine, cider and coffee, using proper COVID19 precautions. Call your order in and then swing by to pick up beer and tots to recreate the full History Pub experience at home.
These monthly, free events are open to everyone interested in Oregon and Pacific Northwest history. Co-sponsored by McMenamins History, Deschutes Historical Museum, and The Oregon Encyclopedia, we bring you experts, scholars, first-person experiencers and historians who expound on topics from Lewis and Clark to shipwrecks, hop growing to women pioneers and far, far beyond. It's like being back in the classroom - except this time you get to settle into comfortable seats and enjoy a drink or two with dinner while you listen and learn.
