OREGON’S AGRICULTURE ROOTS FEATURED ON HERITAGE EXCHANGE
 
When the Willamette Valley attracted immigrants in the 1840s, they came
to farm. Agriculture has loomed large in Oregon’s economy ever since,
and its history and heritage is marked today by many visible traces,
from barns and silos to corrals and grain elevators. Learn how Oregon
recognizes historic agricultural sites through education, signage, and
preservation on Oregon Heritage Exchange at
