  • Arts & Museums

    »Graystone Gallery

    This gallery started in 1983 as a place to showcase the work of newer artists and craftspeople. Now many of those early artists are the art scene veterans and there is a whole generation of new blood here as well. There are two floors of art browsing, with changing shows in several different rooms and more gifty items, too. The prices are relatively low as far as quality original art goes. The owner says he looks for variety and humor in the work he chooses and features mostly Northwestern artists.

    »Jeff Morris Fire Museum

    This street-level window exhibit of antique fire equipment is a memorial to a beloved firefighter. Along with Sparky, his dalmatian, Jeff Morris taught fire prevention and safety to children. The fireman died of cancer in 1974, but his spirit and memory live on in this museum. It is an interesting display of hand pumpers, ladder trucks and a horse-drawn steam pumper. Also on display is a circa-1873 bell that weighs 4,000 pounds and could be heard all the way from downtown Portland to Oregon City. There is no charge to view the exhibit.

    »Kidd Toy Museum

    They do not make toys like this anymore. A vast collection of toys, mostly dolls and iron cast pieces, are displayed throughout three buildings that make up the museum.

Some of the toys are up to 150 years old and their simplicity will surely surprise you.
