"Old Sherwood Town" is only nine blocks in size, yet it represents a very large chunk of what America was about during the turn of the 19th Century. The physical Trail winds through these nine blocks. It begins and ends at the Sherwood Heritage Center. (Also take a look at our 2006 Web Page!)
The Lebanese-born owner of Sesame Donuts hands out free samples of his wares to weary travelers. The school children are of course prudent in their dining habits. They carefully restricted themselves to one delicious doughnut hole apiece. They enjoyed the food, but were far more curious about all the Middle Eastern words and phrases to be found in Oregon. Such as "Damascus" and "Salem" and the enormous Cedar of Lebanon tree that overhangs Pine Street in Old Sherwood Town. The giant tree happens to be the national symbol of Lebanon. Strangely the street is named "Pine Street" instead of "Cedar of Lebanon Street." History is strange.
