Indoor-Outdoor History Camp

Today it was a trip to Dale's Barber Shop in Old Town Sherwood followed by an archeological dig on Chehalem Mountain
Lilly said she never saw a bunch of kids work this hard. They played hard too...

Our findings on the dig concluded that the site was a blacksmith's shop for the Chehalem Stage during the late 1860's-1870's. We found wagon parts, harness parts, and even the front teeth of a horse (or cow). The fruit pickers of the 1930's must have used the old shack for sleeping and or cooking. We found some of their leavings on the top level.
