Civil War Coming to Central Oregon

The House On Metolius ( is off Oregon Highway 126 / US-20, two miles north of Camp Sherman, off road 1420. 

The living history event immerses visitors in an open-air environment nearly identical to those in the 1860s. Reenactors portray, explain and show life during our nation’s most tumultuous period. President Abraham Lincoln will speak Saturday at 1:00pm and is then available for questions. This reenactor is so similar to Lincoln, and equally polished, one walks away from hearing him wondering if, indeed, you were momentarily in 1864. Mock battles with cannons and muskets firing real black powder are scheduled for 11am and 3pm each day. General admission is $8.00. Seniors and students, $5.00. Children under six, free. Parking, $5 per vehicle to help the Boy Scouts.
