The Oregon Connection (The House of Myrtlewood) is one of the oldest businesses in Coos Bay, Oregon. Started in 1929 by William Beaumont, the original location was near the present day Chevron Station on 1st Street. Beaumont, originally from North Dakota, started the business as a way to support his family after the box company where he worked closed down. His son, Daryl Beaumont, worked at the business during his school years and then returned to work full-time after graduating from OSU. When Daryl enlisted in the Navy and served in WWII the senior Beaumont ran the business until his son's return, and then left the area for Southern California.
