In 2023-2024, the Letitia Carson Legacy Project is focused on these activities:

  • Traveling Exhibit: on the move around Oregon and at OSU
  • Archaeological exploration at the Carson homestead site
  • Field trips and events at the land
    • In June 2022 and 2023, we hosted Juneteenth at Letitia Carson’s Land celebrations, inviting the community to tour the land and archaeology site and learn Letitia Carson’s story. (2022 photo below)
    • In October 2022 and 2023, we hosted the Letitia Carson Elementary School 4th grade, to connect their classroom learning with the actual place she lived.
    • We have welcomed many small groups from OSU, the local community, and visitors from other parts of Oregon and the U.S.
  • Outreach to engage and activate the OSU community and external partners
  • Site Design to improve access and visitor experiences at the Carson Donation Land Claim and homestead site, in partnership with the University of Oregon Landscape Architecture Program.
