During its glory days, Kerby was the county seat, boasting of two hotels, several saloons, a jail, school, and one of Oregon’s earliest post offices. Learn of the early day residents and events which forged the hamlet during territorial times. Why was Kerby once known as Napoleon? The answer will be revealed in this program.
