Hobo Foundation

about

The separate dreams of three hobos came together in 1974 when they realized they shared the common goal of preserving hobo history. Hood River Blackie’s search for steam-era hobos brought him to Britt and introduced him to Steamtrain Maury and Feather River John. They drew up their letter of incorporation, filed for tax-exempt status and along with several Britt locals, became the Hobo Foundation. Today the Foundation carries on the ambitious goals of these original hobos.
