The Friendly City

Creswell is close enough to the I-5 freeway to benefit but far enough away to survive. They have a successful skydiving and airport operation there that one sees from the freeway. When I was growing up in Myrtle Creek I heard of Creswell more than most other distant towns. First, it was the base of the Holt family operation to bring Korean war orphans to Oregon and we heard a lot about that. And secondly, folks who wanted to buy household appliances cheap went there to some discount place. I never went there myself because I was a kid and did not need any appliances.
