The images are part of the Siuslaw National Forest Digital Collection and include pictures dating back to the beginnings of the Siuslaw in 1908 to the present.

A highlight of the collection is photographs taken by Corydon Cronk during his time as an assistant ranger in 1910-1911.

The collection will be expanded as other historic information is converted into digital format.
