Fodor's Pacific Northwest
Willamette Heritage Center at The Mill
Willamette Heritage Center at The Mill Review
Take a trip back in time experience the story of Oregon's early pioneers and the industrial revolution. The Thomas Kay Woolen Mill Museum complex (circa 1889), complete with working waterwheels and millstream, looks as if the workers have just stepped away for a lunch break. Teasel gigging, napper flock bins, and the patented Furber double-acting napper are but a few of the machines and processes on display. The Jason Lee House, the John D. Boon Home, and the Methodist Parsonage are also part of the village. There is nothing grandiose about these early pioneer homes, the oldest frame structures in the Northwest, but they reveal a great deal about domestic life in the wilds of Oregon in the 1840s.
Marion County Historical Society Museum. The adjacent Marion County Historical Society Museum displays pioneer and Calapooia Indian artifacts. 503/364–2128.
