Museums Opens for Season


The national-award-winning Sherman County Historical Museum and The Museum Store in Moro open for the season on May 1st. Located next to Moro City Park and operated by friendly volunteers, the Museum is open daily from ten until five and serves as the Sherman County Visitor Center.
 
First-rate exhibits include Oregon Trails, Rails and Roads in Sherman County, Wheat Through the Ages, Patriotism and Pride, and Rural Living. Visitors enjoy making rubbings from replica Native American rock art, practicing weights and measures on scales, riding the wooden horse named Goldie and dressing up in replica Oregon Trail bonnets, aprons or vests. New this year are small millstones for hands-on grinding of grain to flour: soft white winter wheat, hard red spring wheat, rye and buckwheat.
 
Plan to celebrate mothers at the Mother's Day Tea with Jane Kirkpatrick on hand to sign her books on Saturday, May 11, one to three o'clock. All items in The Museum Store will be reduced 15% for this event with no admission fee. For more information call 541-565-3232.
