1855 Military Blockhouse: In the Dayton public square. Originally located at Fort Yamhill (1855-1866). This blockhouse was moved from the Fort to Grand Ronde Agency in the 1860's where it served as a jail. In 1911 it was moved to Dayton where it has been maintained since. County Historical Museum: In Lafayette, northerly of Hwy. 99, at 605 Market Street. Open to the public Saturday and Sunday from 1 to 4 p.m. from June 14 through Labor Day, and from 1 to 4 p.m. Wednesday through Sunday the rest of the year.

Glacial Erratic Rock: Lies about 6 miles southwesterly of McMinnville on Highway 18. During the ice age, this non-indigenous rock arrived at it's current location on an iceberg which floated down from the Columbia River. Be prepared for a short but somewhat steep hike westerly from Highway 18 to the rock.
