The beautiful Mary Olson Farm is said to be King County’s best preserved subsistence farm. The fully restored farm is located on Green River Road and is operated in partnership with White River Valley Museum and the City of Auburn. Find the Farm parking lot on Green River road just North of the Farm’s entrance; walk the old wagon road for an approximately 1/8 mile to the Farm entrance. You can walk through the restored 1897 barn and 1902 farmhouse or wander through the century-old orchard and learn about the many varieties of apples and cherries cultivated there and consider sider what life was like on a rural farm in the 19th century. Other restored and preserved structures on the property include a garage, weaving shed, chicken coop, outhouse, smokehouse, and 19th century wagon road. The farm is open weekends in summer. Admission is free*; a suggested donation of $5 for adults and $2 for children is greatly appreciated. More info: The Farm — White River Valley Museum (wrvmuseum.org)
