Bristow Monument

Elijah Bristow, a veteran of Andrew Jackson’s army, erected his cabin here on Pleasant Hill in 1846, the earliest year of settlement in Lane County. He and his wife, Susannah, then led in establishing the county’s first church and first school. This replica of their fireplace is from the original stones.
