Former Oregon Gov. Barbara Roberts said the efforts to plan and build the National Historic Oregon Trail Interpretive Center were an incredible accomplishment of federal, state, city and county agencies as well as charitable foundations and community members.

“It’s amazing to think of the teamwork that made (the center) possible,” Roberts told the Herald before she spoke during the center’s 25th anniversary celebration Thursday morning.

As governor, Roberts, now 80, attended the center’s groundbreaking, its ribbon-cutting and grand opening ceremony on May 25, 1992, and its 10th anniversary.
