Old Believers, new home

Russian Old Believer

Russian Old Believer

Many Americans have a story about
their family’s roots, but few are as
close to those roots as the Russian Old
Believers, who left their original homes 
over an Eastern European church schism
centuries ago, and found a home in
Oregon’s Marion County mere decades ago. 
They still live in a style that’s old-fashioned and as a
result have found occupations and industry that suit
their old-world beliefs and practices.
