The Umpqua Trapper has been in continuous production since 1964. It is published quarterly with new editions sent to our members. Stories in every issue are about people, places, or events associated only with Douglas County history. One of our most popular issues is “The Blast,” which describes the explosion that damaged or destroyed 30 blocks in Roseburg nearly 64 years ago.
Issues from Previous years are available for purchase for $5 each or 3 for $10 with free shipping. The complete set of over 225 issues can be purchased by interested individuals or organizations. Please contact us for more information. USE “Free Shipping”. COUPON IN CHECKOUT
The Douglas County Historical Society’s mission is to collect, preserve, exhibit, and publish historical material which is related to Douglas County, Oregon. Specifically, we maintain The Floed-Lane House Museum and open it to the public. We also publish the Umpqua Trapper four times a year. It is our goal to make young people aware of their heritage and the history of their community. Home Page of DCHS.org
