HERITAGE

Culture runs deep in the rivers and lands of the region. And since 2021 commemorates the 175th of the Barlow Road, the last leg of the Oregon Trail, it's the perfect time to soak up Oregon Trail history and find out what made the Willamette Valley the beautiful, bounty-rich place it is today.

Walk in the path of past Oregon Trail pioneers when you visit sections of the Barlow Road. Located in the heart of Government Camp, the Mt. Hood Cultural Center and Museum  is a great starting point to understand the past and present of Mt. Hood life. 

Experience the Oregon Trail journey at the End of the Oregon Trail Interpretive Center. Philip Foster Farm offers a glimpse into what daily life was like back in the 1800s. Learn about Mt. Hood Territory’s Indigenous Peoples past and traditions at the Museum of the Oregon Territory

Other family friendly Oregon historical sites include a ride on the historic Canby Ferry or Oregon City’s elevator, which is the only outdoor municipal elevator, also known as a vertical street, remaining in the U.S.
