Langlois - Gateway to Denmark Oregon

Denmark, Oregon - Cousin to Langlois
(by Bonnie Jensen Cox)


There was a time when Langlois School (aka "Dairyville School") was referred to as the "north side school" to distinguish it from Denmark, Oregon's "south side school." That was in 1885 when Dairyville's school sat on the north bank of Floras Creek, and the community of Denmark was contained in its first location nearer Floras Creek than Willow Creek. Later, Langlois School would be moved inside the town's platted boundaries, and the focal point of Denmark would be adjacent to Willow Creek Bridge as articulated on a map that my father, Charlie Jensen, drew for me when he was 102. The relevance of the two communities to each other might suggest a cousin kinship. Read more about Langlois - Gateway to Denmark Oregon

Langlois as an Artist Colony-Who Knew.

Unbeknownst to many, Langlois is home to many artists using various media to include painting, woodcarving, woodworking, spinning and weaving, fabric art, hand-crafted items of clothing, felting, pottery, jewelry making, greeting card making and more.

Some of this body of work can be seen at the RainCoast Gallery and the Wild Rivers Factory in Langlois and in other galleries in Bandon and Port Orford. There are also rotating exhibits at the local libraries, plus periodic special exhibits.

Below are four Langloisians (?) show their work after completing a watercolor/pastel class taught by a Langlois artist, Jean Stephenson.

The Great Birthright


The premise of my debut novel, The Great Birthright, is that a Los Angeles developer wants to privatize Oregon's publicly owned beaches, and only one washed-up detective and self-published writer can stop him. That writer would be me, writing about myself in the third person just like Norman Mailer and Caesar! Read more about The Great Birthright:: The Great Oregon Army and Return of the SOBs
