. Glimpse into the past with a visit to the Pine Valley Museum in Halfway, Oregon. Settled in the 1860's, Pine Valley has a long history of agriculture, mining and timber production. A nice collection of Pine Valley history is on display at our museum.
The first white settler in the area was Charles Fee. He was loved by all Pine Valley residents and was a good friend of the Umatilla and Nez Perce Native Americans who roamed the country. Fee was known to have hauled a sick Indian 25 miles to the Chinese doctor in Sparta with an ox team and wagon. The site of Charles Fee's first cabin in Pine Valley is near the present day Fair Grounds.
Open - End of May through Mid September. Also open by special appointment. Admission is free.
