Travel Tips for Milwaukie
Attend the Milwaukie Daze...
Attend the Milwaukie Daze celebration held in early June each year. All of the local schools are involved and there are many fun activities for children. A rare opportunity to enjoy a community and an old-fashioned downtown area with family and friends. The beautiful green of all the trees preserved throughout the city. Also, the Willamette River and numerous city parks.
Milwaukie Pioneer Cemetary
This cemetary is difficult to find, has only one parking spot, and is very difficult to get your car out of once you have gotten it into it.
This cemetary got it start in 1850, but didn't become public property until 1869.
Quite a number of early families have at least a few of their members here, and it was where some of the families known in the hitosry of Oregon and the Portland area are buried.
Some of the stones are quite weathered, while others appear to be quite recent. One of the historic stones has been removed and placed in the Milwaukie museum.
As can be expected, after over 150 years of settling, some of the stones have fallen over, and others are leaning at odd angles.
A small number of dedicated volunteers are responsible for keeping the cemetary looking good for visitors.
The single parking place is located off of SE 17th Avenue just north of the intersection with Milport Road and Waverly Drive. Bus route #70 has stops at Milport Road.
The Milwaukie Heritage Museaum...
The Milwaukie Heritage Museaum is a tiny little-known establishment on Railroad Avenue, on the corner of 32nd Street about two blocks North of Highway 224 in Milwaukie.
Open Saturday through Friday, it has an amazing assortment of Pioneer artifacts and is a great source of interesting history particularly of individuals who helped settle the community.
It is operated by the North Clackamas Parks and Recreation Department.
