The Yamhill Valley Heritage Center is open Fridays and Saturdays, 10am-4pm, and we look forward to seeing you! The Lafayette Research Library is temporarily closed due to road construction in front of the building. We hope to reopen in August on Fridays and Saturdays, but please call 503-864-2308 to confirm that the facility is open.

Please join us for Harvest Fest at the Heritage Center on August 21-22. Enjoy old-fashioned fun with antique equipment and animals harvesting the fields, blacksmith and sawmill demos, food, music, vendors, tours of the museum and more!
