weekend in July, first weekend in August, Powerland has the
Great Oregon Steam-up. This is a large show that often attracts
10,000 people per weekend. There are tractor pulls, Steam tractor
parades, log mill operations, threshing and haying demonstrations,
miniature railroad rides, and streetcar rides giving by the Museum.

We need more help, both physical and financial
to support and expand our museum. The society has
received many grants and donations over the past years, which has helped
tremendously, but as usual, more help is required. Please consider
joining and or donating to the
OERHS. We are a non-profit organization. There is a
Membership/ Donation form On-Line. Please print it out and send it in!
Or donate via Paypal.
