Small town America scores another nice museum: Baker Heritage Museum. Housed in the former Natatorium, it features items from local history.
Almost every museum out here has a stagecoach.
This “mud coach” stage coach had no doors, making it light enough to avoid getting bogged down in the mud. It did have canvas sidewalls though.
One wheat thresher per valley. All wheat growers chipped in. This one from Indiana, came down the Mississippi, boated around the Horn to Portland, barged up the Columbia, disassembled and freighted via wagon to Baker.
Air Mail Beacon. Before radar these were placed in high places and planes flew from one to the next.
This is an homage to No Name City from the musical Paint Your Wagon, our first major polyamorous movie.
