The Rorick House is known to have been built about 1850 for a noncommissioned officer from the U.S. Army post at The Dalles and was used as the sergeant’s quarters and long-time TV journalist from Eugene. "The story of Mark Hatfield is about his approach to leadership, the lives he influenced, and his involvement in iconic moments in history. There are important lessons here for today's leaders and the citizens who elect them."
