Whispers From the Rae Room

The Oregonian, an Oregon based newspaper, covered a mystery story that has carried into the beyond. Roy Widing, a local historian who specializes on this mystery, was interviewed about his new book entitle “Whispers From the Rae Room.”

“When I heard that, I was intrigued,” says Widing, now a Wilsonville real estate agent. “I got curious. Who were these people and what was this room? I’ve been to Europe and seen tombs there. This was nothing like what you would expect to see in Oregon. I was fascinated. It sounds a little macabre, but I started looking into the Raes and this room. I was single during this period of my life, so I had time on my hands.”
