AAA Editor Notes

Olmstead Place Historical State Park is at 921 N. Ferguson Rd. This 217-acre park preserves the legacy of a pioneer family farm. Settled in 1875, it was one of the first homesteads in the Kittitas Valley. Historic farm buildings include a log cabin, granary, barns, sheds and the residence, built in 1908 and containing period furnishings. The site features a carefully restored historic garden and dozens of pieces of early farm equipment. The .75-mile Altapes Creek Interpretive Trail links a red barn and the reconstructed Seaton Cabin School. Guided tours are available.
Park admission $10 (per private vehicle); Discover Pass, valid for 1 year, $30 (per private vehicle).
Hours: Park open daily 6:30-dusk, Memorial Day-Labor Day; 8-dusk, rest of year. Guided 1-hour tours are given Sat.-Sun. noon-4, Memorial Day weekend-Labor Day. Allow 1 hour minimum.
