Historic Home Tour: McMinnville 100 Years - Then, Now and Beyond

Aug 6, 2012

The Yamhill Enrichment Society (YES) has set into motion a community-wide project comparing life 100 years ago to life today and leading to the next question — how do we take the best of the past and present into the future?

Working with the Yamhill County Historical Society, Linfield College, McMinnville Downtown Association, McMinnville Public  Library, City of McMinnville, News-Register, Gormley Plumbing + Mechanical; Hagan Hamilton Insurance Services; Oregon Stationers; and Haugeberg, Rueter, Gowell, Fredricks & Higgins, McMinnville Garden Club, Gallery Players, Yamhill Soil & Water Conservation District, and Yamhill Valley Heritage Center, YES is coordinating a series of research discussions, exhibitions, lectures, displays and tours examining how our forbears handled the reinventing of their economy as the horse and buggy era gave way to automobiles — an economic dislocation parallel to what we are experiencing today.
