History Camp at Parrett Mountain Farm

This year's History Camp featured a full scale replica of a covered wagon at Parrett Mountain Farm. It was put on display by the Yamhill County Museum. Some pretty convincing covered wagon folk from Yamhill and Columbia County also showed up. Of course, Sherwood's own mountain man, Blue Bonnett and forlorn castaway Lilly Morgan were on hand to make sure the kids didn't get trampled by the oxen.

Class of 1947 Visits Morback House

The Senior Class of 1947 came to Old Sherwood Town yesterday (Saturday) to share a few memories and shed a few tears over how wonderful it felt for their generation to come out of World War II alive. Their school house carried the title "Sherwood Union High School" then. Today the building is Sherwood Middle School. The alums expressed their appreciation for what the Sherwood Historical Society has done to preserve Rebekah Hall and Morback House for future generations.

Hello Fourth Graders!

This was the scene at the Sherwood Heritage Center today as umpteen million Clyde Hopkins Elementary School 4th Graders descended upon us. (Note Smock and Morback Houses in background)
The basic idea was to relive, for a few minutes, the appalling hardships we ancestors (seen here) faced when electricity and internal combustion weren't part of daily life. All three elementary schools came to the Heritage Center to see how we were getting along.

Here Archer Glen students are being welcomed by Lilly Morgan,

A.K.A. June Reynolds, whose amazing organizational skills make it possible for the Sherwood Historical Society to take part in such an elaborate project. Here she seems to be playing the role of Sacajawea to Middleton School's Fourth Graders. Bread and butter making, washing clothes, and wood working were demonstrated.
