Travel Spotlight: Fort Rock

photos by Talia Galvin

Most of the Fort Rock homesteaders did not make it financially, but they left behind evidence of the community they forged out of this vast, sparse, high desert land. The Fort Rock Valley Historical Homestead Village Museum tells the pioneers’ stories through buildings from the early 1900s. Tour the doctor’s office, church, general store, one-room schoolhouse, blacksmith shop and chuck wagon. It all seems like recent history compared to the neighboring Fort Rock National Historic Landmark, a prehistoric, towering, jagged, volcanic tuff ring.
