On our way to Washington last Friday, Cary, Dana and I stopped to stretch our legs in the cute little Central Oregon town of Grass Valley, Oregon.
There were historic buildings ...
Neat old houses ...
And right in the middle of town, a little park with on-road parking.
Grass Valley City Park had a maker that counts it as sesquicentennial. I looked it up, and that long word means 150 years. I'm guessing that Grass Valley was 150 years old in 2009.
Here are few more pictures of the park itself:
There was also this Oregon History sign that tells about the Oregon Trail's Cutoff to the Barlow Road. I enlarged it so that you can read it easier:
Across the street from the park is a pretty house with beautiful flower gardens ...
I always feel grateful and appreciative when a town welcomes travelers and gives it's community a delightful place to hang out. Thanks, Grass Valley folks!
There is a lot more to see there, but we were only driving through. There is a vacant school and old church that people are fond of taking pictures of. Here is the Wikipedia.com link.
