Baker Cabin Historical Site

The Cabin and site was accepted to the National Registry of Historic Places in 1976.

The site has two historic structures — the 1856 Baker Cabin sitting on it’s original site, and the 1895 Pioneer Church, moved to the site in 1967 from Upper Logan (Springwater).

Horace and Jane Baker traveled west from Illinois in the second wagon train from Independence Missouri in 1846. This was the first wagon train to cross the new Barlow Road from The Dalles to Oregon City. The Barlow Trail bypassed the treacherous ride on rafts down the Columbia River.
