A family outing at Olmstead Place State Park in Ellensburg on Sept. 15-16 will include a special day that explores the history of the restored 1800s pioneer farm.
There will be displays of antique farm equipment, such as a threshing machine, antique tractors and others. There also will be equipment demonstrations on the 217-acre site.
The Olmstead family arrived in Kittitas County in 1875 and lived on the farm for about 100 years before donating it to Washington State Parks in 1968.
Admission to the park is free, but food will be available throughout the day. Breakfast is from 7 to 10 a.m. and costs $5.50. Lunch is from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. and costs $5.50.
Never miss a local story.
