    East Bend: Rajneeshpuram Revisited

    12:00 PM - Wednesday - Meeting Room

    Revisit the history and controversy of the Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh and Rajneeshpuram.

    In October 1985, a four-year effort to construct a utopia in Wasco County collapsed in a flurry of criminal charges and arrests of its leaders, including Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh. At its peak, Rajneeshpuram housed or hosted 15,000 followers of the Bhagwan. What ended the city so soon? Hostility from other Oregonians? Legal entanglements? A flawed business model? The failures of its leaders and residents? This presentation tries to understand how an effort that was positive for thousands of individuals failed so spectacularly as a community.

    Join Carl Abbott, Professor Emeritus of Urban Studies and Planning at Portland State University, for this presentation on one of the stranger stories from Oregon History. He is the author of numerous books on American cities, regional planning, and the American West.

    This program is repeat of the April 24th History Pub at McMenamins Old St. Francis School. History Pub is sponsored by the Deschutes County Historical Society, Oregon Encyclopedia, and the Oregon Historical Society.
