Navigating the Scenic Tour Route Via Interpretive Signage & Turn-By-Turn Directions
Along the route, two interpretive panels offer a quick history lesson about the area’s history, bridging the area’s legacy with today’s modern culture.
On the grounds of Old Scotch Church (30685 NW Scotch Church Rd., Hillsboro; oldscotchchurch.org), an interpretive panel provides a historical perspective about the earliest settlers in Washington County, from the Atfalati tribe to the arrival of early settlers.
An interpretive panel illustrating the rich agricultural history of the Tualatin Valley is at the Smith Berry Barn, a u-pick berry and apple farm in Scholls. This panel provides a brief account of some of the area’s earliest farmers, as well as the site itself, from the 1870s to present day.
Keep an eye out for crop signs along the route. From bison to rhubarb, these signs identify what is being produced at several farms throughout the area.
