Do any of you recall the Heritage Tree dedication at the Shipley-Cook Farm? Well the farm (also an Oregon Century Farm) recently hosted Restore Oregon’s annual historic barn workshop at the 1862 Shipley-Cook Barn—one of only 18 remaining Pioneer-era barns still standing in the Willamette Valley. The event featured speakers, a tour of restored barns, hands-on training, and sessions on barn construction and rehabilitation.

Check out Clackamas County’s video below, and you’ll catch sight of some of the wonderful species of trees that are part of the Shipley-Cook Heritage Grove.
