Talking Rocks Podcast & Historical Tour

The Talking Rocks of Heppner have come alive! Take a historical tour of Heppner, Oregon following our Talking Rocks. Each rock features bronze plaques on local basalt stone quarried on a local ranch. The same stone was used to build our historical Morrow County Courthouse in 1903.

Listen to the first of many episodes to come on Spotify today! It will be available on other platforms, and a QR code will also be on each rock in town in the near future. 

Special thanks to Julie Baker, Office Manager for OSU Morrow County Extension office, and their high school intern, Paul Lindsay for making this project happen.
