Kopp Eden Within Eden: Oregon’s Utopian Heritage

Since the establishment of the Aurora Colony in 1856, Oregon has been home to nearly 300 communal experiments. James Kopp, director of Watzek Library, pens the first book to survey the state’s utopian history, from religious and socialist groups of the 19th century to ecologically conscious communities of the 21st century.
