The Fruit Foundation Historical Society is hosting an open house to celebrate the opening of the Remembering Our Roots historical exhibit in Pine Grove.
The open house is Thursday, Sept. 22, from 5 to 7 p.m. at The Fruit Company building on Van Horn Drive in Pine Grove. The public is welcome.
Hors d'oeuvres will be served.
Remembering Our Roots is an exhibit highlighting the history of the fruit industry in the Hood River Valley. Historic artifacts on display include a 1930s-era pickers' cabin, a tractor and sprayer, early 1900s packing house equipment and orchard tools.
Text panels and historic photos help tell the story of the valley's fruit history.
The Remembering Our Roots exhibit is the beginning of what will eventually be a large museum, tentatively called the Fruit Heritage Museum, to be located in space donated by The Fruit Company in its Pine Grove building (the former Diamond Fruit cold storage facility).
The Fruit Foundation is a nonprofit organization. For information about the exhibit and future museum, call the Hood River County Historical Museum at (541) 386-6772.
