The Albany Regional Museum’s History Bites at Noon lecture series will focus Wednesday on the historic Santiam Wagon Road.

Marcia Morse, who has spent years volunteering on the upkeep of the road, will discuss the trail and its importance to the region during her photo presentation.

The trail has its origins in an 1859 expedition to find a new route over the Cascades. It served as the dominant route east from the Willamette Valley until 1939, and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

History Bites is free to attend, but the museum accepts donations to support its programs. Light refreshments will be served.

The Albany Regional Museum is at 136 Lyon St. S. For more information, call 541-967-7122.
