Yamhill Valley Heritage Center will be hosting Father’s Day On The Farm  June 17 + 18, 2017 from 10 to 3pm:  Start your Father’s Day weekend off right by bringing the family over to the Yamhill Valley Heritage Center at 11275 SW Durham Ln, just off of HWY 18.  

Making Hay While the Sun Shines. On Saturday, June 17, Wayne Beckwith with friends and their mules will be making  hay, using antique horse-drawn equipment, in a good ol’ fashioned haying demonstration. Take this opportunity to witness how loose hay was handled when it was done with horses and mules.

Then on Sunday, June 18 the museum is open to celebrate Yamhill County dads. Throughout the day, Dad can tour the agricultural exhibits in the museum, and sit at the teacher’s desk in the one room schoolhouse. He can take a swing or play catch with a bat and ball circa 1866, play a couple games of horseshoes, enter the 2nd annual historical society arm wrestling contest, or just sit back and listen to the player piano with a cold sarsaparilla. 

Admission is free!  Brought to you by the Yamhill County Historical Society – Preserving Our Past, Enriching our Future.  Find us on the web and Facebook at
