Experience Living History at Pomeroy Farm in Yacolt

In 1910, E.C. Pomeroy, along with his wife Adelaide and their five children came to live at what became Pomeroy Farm in Yacolt. Born in Canada to English parents, E.C. Pomeroy had a rich and interesting life — he left home at the age of nine-years-old because he didn’t get along with his step-mother! In Detroit, Michigan, he learned the blacksmith trade. he fought in the southern Oregon Indian wars. He worked on the railroad. He even flipped farms – fixing them up and selling them for a profit. He finally settled on 160 acres in the Lucia Valley.

Today, the farm depicts life as it was in 1920 – when the original farmhouse burned down and another was built in it’s place. Visiting the Pomeroy Farm gives us all a chance to step back in time. Watch for their themed teas and don’t miss pumpkin lane in the fall.
