|A whistle stop named "Cipole" was a major player in the Sherwood economy. According to the papers, "Sherwood has the distinction of shipping more onions than any other place in the world. Great wagonloads of them have been coming into town the last few weeks, and are being shipped by the carload."|
--Sherwood News-Sheet Oct. 11, 1911
The Cipole landscape has been called the most pristine example of the J Harlen Bretz scablands in Oregon. Much of it is also inside the Tualatin River Wilderness Refuge. We transported a small section of this remarkable territory to Veterans Park for this reenactment.
"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!)
