SPRINGFIELD, OR. -- Dorris Ranch's "Living History Village" is now missing some of that history after two cabins were broken in to over the weekend.

Willamalane Park and Recreation District officials believe the break-in happened either Saturday or Sunday, and the aftermath was found Monday morning.

The aprons, bonnetts, china plates, dutch ovens, tools, and even the firewood were all taken.

Officials said it's probably around $2500 worth of replaceable items that were stolen.

However, many of the items were handmade by people around the community, and reflective of how they would've been made in the late 1800's.

Willamalane Park and Recreation District Superintendent Michael Wargo said the hard part will be finding items from the right time period.

"Yes, we do have insurance. It will cover some of it, but it's also very challenging to get the right historical tools that are right for the period that we are trying to represent. So, with any funds we are able to raise, that will go to beef security up and make sure that.. to prevent this from happening again."
