Fort Hill

Polk County, 97396

Early travelers may have stopped by Fort Yamhill out of necessity but now the stop seems less compelling. A little gas station, store and restaurant complex services passersby and a sawmill provides local jobs. (Update 2012: the highway department because of Casino traffic blocked off access to the commercial center and only the restaurant remains, but you can't get to it). The last tourist attraction left town in 1911 when the enterprising city fathers at Dayton carried away the Fort Yamhill block house and made it an attraction in their city park.
