The beautiful Mary Olson Farm is located on Green River Road and is operated as a partnership between the White River Valley Museum and the City of Auburn. It is said to be King County’s best preserved subsistence farm and has been fully restored.
Today, visitors can tour inside the restored 1897 barn, pause and consider what life was like on a rural farm in the 1902 farmhouse, or wander through the century-old orchard and learn about the many varieties of apples and cherries Alfred Olson cultivated. Other restored and preserved structures on the property include a garage, weaving shed, chicken coop, outhouse, smokehouse, and 19th century wagon road.
If you visit during the summer, you can take advantage of one of the many special programs and events, like a lecture on honeybees, poets and music on the farm and even beer festivals.
