Family admission to Mary Charlotte’s Garden Party at Philip Foster Farm on Saturday, July 19th, $10 with coupon

Phillip Foster Farm Half Price Coupon

Thier Text:

Come join us at our Garden Party on the third Saturday of July to celebrate Mary Charlotte and the many pioneer women who trekked across the Oregon Trail and made Oregon civilized. Enjoy live music, tour the historic farm on the Oregon Trail, and learn about 19th century fashions. Tour our historic Rose Ramble, with starts of pioneer roses available for your garden. View the needlework of pioneer women, and learn about their crafts from modern practitioners. Kids and grandkids will enjoy the hands-on activities, like corn-grinding, croquet, crosscut sawing, and building a log cabin.

-July 19, 2014, 1:00-4:00 p.m.
-Victorian Fashion Show
-Family Friendly activities for all ages
-Historic Quilts and textile crafters

Mary Charlotte was Philip Foster's long-suffering wife, and mother of nine (four when she made the trip around the horn in 1842). Philip Foster, one of Oregon’s earliest pioneers, was a leader in the establishment of Oregon. His farm and home in Eagle Creek played an important part in the history of the Barlow Road, which followed the south side of Mt. Hood as an alternative to the treacherous Columbia River route. Either option held great danger: navigate the river’s swift currents and rapids, or risk the steep slopes and early winter snows in the mountains. Foster helped fund, build and operate the Barlow Road at various times between 1848 and 1865, guiding thousands of covered wagons into the Willamette Valley.

My Say:

I love the Phillip Foster Farm.  It's an amazing place in a beautiful setting, run by dedicated volunteers. They wish for you to know about simpler times, when people worked hard and appreciated all that they had.  Worth the trip and fun activities for the kids.
