Celebrating 40 years of Valley River Inn of Eugene, Oregon
Valley River Inn opened September of 1973 and has been Eugene, Oregon’s beloved hotel ever since. With 40 years of rich history in the community, it is also home to many memories and life’s special occasions shared. In honor of this exciting day we are taking the time to look back and find out more about how we came to be what we are today.
Valley River Inn has a history almost as unique as all the individuals that have worked there. When I was four years old my Mom began working at the hotel , and now as a UO grad I find myself back at the hotel of my childhood working and reflecting not only on my life but the many memories made here. I am excited to take the next few months to discover and share our rich history from the 70s to 2013.
As we weave the rich history together we are looking for individuals or businesses that have been able to make memories here with us. If this sounds like you please submit your stories here and be entered to win, or if you want to know more about our timeline check out our 40th Anniversary web page.
