Description

In Baker City’s second year running for Most Beautiful we saw even more of what this quaint small town has to offer. While the Geiser Grand Hotel is still a main attraction with its historic building, trade mark clock tower, and highly acclaimed food, our visit included the Adler House, Thomas Angus Ranch, Sumpter Valley Railroad and Oregon Trail Interpretive Center as well.

The Leo Adler House Museum explores the life of a Baker City philanthropist from the 1800s with tours, art, and dining on site. The Oregon Trail and Sumpter Valley Railroad also take visitors back in time to re-live westward expansion and gold country both with interactive offerings.

Thomas Angus Ranch raises cattle beneath the Elkhorn Mountains with real cowboys wrangling cattle and a party barn. Visitors may also enjoy fly fishing locally or attending community events like the annual Wooden Bat Tournament, We Like ‘Em Short Film Festival, Music in the Meadow or one of several rodeos.

Baker City’s also a prime location to view wildlife, particularly elk, whether on the Elkhorn Scenic Byway or a guided tour. Don’t miss the Farmer’s Market, Heritage Museum, Brownlee Reservoir or the downtown walking tour while in town. For more on what Baker City offers see their reviews.

Main Street has been fully restored back to the late 1800's architecture. It is a pleasure to see and enjoy.
