Peg Tree – Heritage Tree

This tree was a meeting place for the early townspeople and Grange members of Oswego. A peg was driven into the tree for hanging a lantern to light these meetings. In 1852, before a proper building could be erected, Sunday school classes were held under the tree. The Peg Tree is the lone survivor of what was once a great row of Douglas-firs that lined the road to the furnace of the iron smelter.
