A generous gift from L. Verl and Dorothy Miller resulted in the construction of the Miller Log Museum. Built in memory of the John G. Baker family, other early Yamhill County pioneers, and Native Americans who lived in the area before the immigrants arrived, the two-story Log Museum houses the Ruth Stoller Research Library downstairs. Researchers will find a wealth of genealogical, archive and library resource materials, books by local and regional authors and a photo archive documenting the history of Yamhill County.
Exploring the Log Museum upstairs visitors will see an amazing collection of quilts and other textiles spanning the 1850s through today. Exhibits feature Native American baskets and tools, furnishings that once graced the Miller’s home, and a rope bed outfitted with a mattress created locally during the great depression.
