Brownsville is one of the oldest towns in Oregon, and its citizens have always honored their history. The annual Pioneer Picnic, begun in 1887, is Oregon's oldest continuing celebration. In this view, Main Street is to the right. In detail view 1 you can clearly read the signs for druggist and meat market. Detail view 2 shows the Moyer House, built in 1881, which is now a museum. In 1919, three blocks in the center of town were unfortunately destroyed by a large fire. The Moyer house was just outside the fire's path.
