Sara Cone, Volunteer & Visitor Services Coordinator
Sara enjoys Oregon history, museums and working with people. Thankfully her job combines all three aspects. She is descended from Oregon and California pioneers and as a child enjoyed reading all the books she could find on the Oregon Trail and sewing 19th century clothing. While growing up on the West Coast, visiting museums was her favorite thing to do on family trips and she has enjoyed volunteering over the years at the Robert Newell House and Champoeg State Park.
