Mary Olson Farm
About the Farm
The Mary Olson Farm is a 67-acre 1887 family subsistence farm located along the Green River in Auburn Washington. In the wet Pacific Northwest, it is rare to find a full assembly of old wooden buildings remaining, but at the Mary Olson Farm all that was required for a family subsistence farm still exists. The Olson family built a barn (1897), two-story farmhouse (1902), and a smoke house (c1910), outhouse (c1910), icehouse/garage (c1920) and weaving house (c1910) all of which have been fully restored. They are set in a private canyon defined by Olson Creek and filled with the 100+ year old orchard, pastures and farmhouse yard.
The Mary Olson Farm is a King County Landmark and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The Farm operates as a living history and environmental learning site, and is owned by the City of Auburn and managed by the White River Valley Museum. The Farm hosts thousands of students annually on fieldtrips, conducts private group tours and offers public events and programs each summer.
