Market Road 20

PIKE ROAD - TURNER CREEK ROAD - dating to 1865 - Pike road is the road leading west from Yamhill to the community of Pike. The community was named after Pike County, Missouri, from which many Oregon pioneers emigrated. Turner Creek road meanders in a northwestern direction from Pike Road. The creek was named for a family of pioneer settlers who, at one time, operated a small water-driven sawmill near the upper end of the creek.
