It’s an invitation! Take a walk on the rural side at the Sherman County Historical Museum in Moro! The timing is just right for friends and relatives visiting for class reunions and the Memorial Day Celebration in Wasco.
 
Museum Hosts are happy to provide the County’s new driving and cycling itineraries, The Way West and Windmills and Wheat Fields, and a comprehensive county brochure with a map, Explore the Land between the Rivers. The newest in the County brochure series is A Tourist’s Guide to Grain Production. Mid Columbia Producers’ grain handling interpretive sign between the Museum and the grain elevator tells the story, as do grain fact cards which may be picked up in the Museum exhibit, Wheat Through The Ages.
 
Memorial Day weekend visitors will be especially interested in the community bulletin board in the exhibit, Patriotism: Anguish and Pride, where families are encouraged to post photographs (with captions) of military family members. Stories told by local veterans are preserved in the exhibit and in the publication, Sherman County: For The Record.  
 
Visitors will find lunch, a cup of coffee, unique shops and Moro City Park on Main Street and, with their children, may explore Oregon Trails, Rails and Roads in Sherman County, one of the Museum’s interpretive exhibits. Hands-on activities include a small grinding stone for young flour millers, muslin and crayons for replica rock art rubbings and pioneer dress-up clothes to wear while riding Goldie!
