The Lake Oswego Review, West Linn Tidings and Wilsonville Spokesman set out to dig up little known facts about our communities

"Did you know ...?"

Those three simple words can take you in an endless number of directions. What follows them could be a trip back in time, or a spellbinding discovery right in your backyard.

They were what guided us as we set off on the production of our annual Perspective section, which this year carries a theme of — you guessed it — "Did you know?"Find Perspective in your paper or on newsstands today.

Did you know, for instance, that Lake Oswego's City Hall nearly burned down in 1949? Or that a Wilsonville neighborhood was the epicenter of a decades-long land-use drama? You've probably seen Willamette Falls in West Linn, but did you know that they are a sacred fishing ground for the Confederated Tribes of Grand Ronde — and have been for tens of thousands of years?

Even if you're well-versed in the history and makeup of Lake Oswego, West Linn and Wilsonville, we're going out on a limb and guaranteeing you'll learn at least one new fact as you peruse these pages.

We just know it.
