Homestead Springs

From Oregon Hikers Field Guide

Pumphouse and cistern, Homestead Springs, Soda Springs Unit (bobcat)
Crop seeder, Homestead Springs (bobcat)


The land here was once a farm, and the main buildings were erected around these springs. You'll see a couple of old building foundations and a small pumphouse over one of the springs. There's a separate small springhouse. The concrete foundation of the old farmhouse remains after the house was removed when the land was purchased by the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife in the 1950s. There are some rusting pieces of agricultural equipment. Keep walking up the road into a grove of oaks. To your left is a large open-sided shed that is sometimes used by WDFW.
