Philip Foster established his land claim on the Oregon Trail in 1847, welcoming its weary travelers to enjoy the bounty of the new life they could have here in Oregon. Today the Jacknife-Zion-Horseheaven Historical Society welcomes you to experience pioneer life through hands-on activities and explorations of the 1847 reproduction store and log cabin, 1860's barn, and 1883 home built on his claim. Tour guides in period dress tailor the tour to your interests and share their enthusiasm for our local history. Grind corn, use a scrubboard and wringer, try out the crosscut saw, and build your own log cabin. Popular with all ages, our site is both real history and real fun.
