|Claeys Farm. #57 is an original block, the Farmall Tractor, designed by Marilyn Alexander. The tractor has personal meaning to Jim Claeys, as his father had one, but it was sold when he died. Jim wanted to find an old tractor and found one on Craigslist. Imagine his surprise when he realized that it was the same tractor his dad had owned, complete with notes still with it that his father had written years ago! See this one at 34210 NW Bagley Rd, Hillsboro. It is best viewed going east on Wren Road. Turn onto Bagley Rd, and look for a red/white building on the west side of Bagley Road. It may also be viewed eastbound on Wren Road.|
Santoro Century Farm, at 22050 SW Rosedale Road, Beaverton, features a Holstein cow. This barn was built in 1916 and used as a dairy barn until 1977. 85-90 Holsteins were home here, and the farm produced its own grain and hay, as well as hazelnuts. The block, Maggie the Cow, is an original design used by permission of designer Cyrille Zellweger. Best seen going east on Rosedale Rd., but use caution here as there is a curve in the road traffic visibility may be poor.
