Coming to Cornell Estates is a decedent of the famous pioneer, frontiersman, sheriff, and politician Joe Meek! David Meek will be speaking on the life of his forefather, Joe Meek; a man who went from being fur trapper to a politician advocating for the Oregon territory.

As a leading member in the new Oregon territory, Joseph Meek left his mark on Oregon and specifically Hillsboro, where many landmarks and a road are named after him. Look into Oregon history and one is bound to find a Joe Meek story. Join us on Friday, June 2nd to learn more about this Oregon icon and get a glimpse into the past.
