Trail Days 2006


What could a bank robber, three Quaker girls, a coonskin hat, and a few sticks of dynamite have to do with the history of Sherwood?

The crowds just kept getting bigger during our fourth annual walking tour, also known as Heritage Trail Days. By Sunday afternoon there were between 15 and 20 visitors exploring our core area. This included a couple from Germany and another from England (from Nottingham, no less!). The Sherwood Gazette reports that "...tourism will likely grow in the Washington and Yamhill County areas." To which we might add: "...along with the world's curiosity about our typical little 19th Century railroad town."

My favorite moment was when the British couple asked why we weren't saying more about the Robin Hood Festival. Next year we should have the Robin and his Merry Crew flitting around in the background during these proceedings.

I must say I had a good amount of fun. I was asked what time period we were in, but we were in so many that I could not keep them straight! That is the hazard of time travel!
