Welcome to Historic Downtown McMinnville!

Welcome to Oregon's Favorite Main Street

 

Downtown McMinnville has been the heartbeat of Yamhill County since before it was incorporated in 1876.

The McMinnville of today is rich in history and small town charm, while providing amenities typically only associated with much larger cities.

The latter can be attributed in great part to the wealth of wineries in the area. Great wine naturally deserves excellent food, 

 

which leads to a need for wonderful and varied overnight accommodations, and, of course, for superior coffee and breakfast in the morning.

Quaint boutiques, unique shops, and local galleries abound. Music fills the air from our farmers’ market performers and outdoor concerts all summer long, and pours out of our restaurants and pubs on winter evenings.

Welcome to Oregon's favorite main street.
