Time: 12:00 PM - 2:00 PM PDT
Event Description:
Industry. Industrial. Industrious. Delve into the past, present and future of the work that has shaped our world. From the history of the Industrial Revolution, to a discussion about work ethic and creativity, to the potential of the Fourth Industrial Revolution, we’ve gathered experts to share what makes industry work. 

Local historian Tor Hanson takes you on a trip to 1905 Bend to explain why the city ended up becoming the center of the lumber industry and home to two of the largest pine mills in the United States in the ‘20s and ‘30s. Hanson is passionate about history, especially Central Oregon's history. He is a board member of the Deschutes Historical Society and the editor of the society's monthly newsletter, The Homesteader.
