The Philip Foster Farm and Homestead (29912 SE Rte. 211, Eagle Creek, 503/637-6324, 11 a.m.–4 p.m. Fri.–Sun. mid-June–Sept., donations appreciated) is the end of the historic Barlow Road, the place that greeted the emigrants after crossing Mount Hood  en route to the Willamette Valley .
This working historical farm features a home, an antique barn, a blacksmith shop filled with period artifacts, and pioneer gardens of flowers, herbs, and vegetables. There is also an apple orchard containing varieties from the pioneer era. Visitors can have hands-on experience grinding corn, building log cabins, and partaking of other chores typical of the pioneers.
The Pioneer Store features Northwest food, crafts, and history-oriented items. A lilac bush dating back to 1843 is also of interest. Shady picnic tables make this site ideal for a family outing. Just pick up Route 211 off U.S. 26 in Sandy and head south for 6 miles to Eagle Creek.
