Miss Pauline Kline and her family’s story of arriving in Corvallis in the mid-1860s and operating “dry goods, fancy goods, millinery and gents furnishing goods” stores in Albany and Corvallis will be recounted during the annual July cemetery tour in Albany.
Kline, who was born to Russian and Polish Jews in 1860, died in 1939 in Corvallis and is buried with other family members in the Albany Hebrew Cemetery in the 3100 block of Salem Avenue S.E.
That cemetery and the Houston Cemetery across the street will have docents on hand from 7 p.m. to dusk Wednesday, July 25, to talk about some of the people buried in the cemeteries during the free 11th annual History Through Headstone Tour sponsored by the Albany Regional Museum.
