Saturday August 18 at 5 PM Tor Hanson will give a presentation on Camp Abbot, his history of what came before Sunriver.  Camp Abbot was established as an engineer replacement training center for engineers involved in the war effort during WWII. Col. Frank Beeson of the Corps of Engineers, a West Point graduate, was charged with running the camp.  Col. Beeson knew what the engineers would face, in WWI he commanded engineers on the Western Front.  Over ninety thousand combat engineers were trained at Camp Abbot for war duty.  Camp Abbot is filled with period photographs and details about the camp.  We have many requests for books on the history of the area, this is right to the point.
