President James K. Polk State Historic Site

This site is located on land once owned by the parents of James K. Polk, the 11th U.S. president. The site commemorates significant events in the Polk administration: the Mexican-American War, settlement of the Oregon boundary dispute, and the annexation of California. Reconstructions of typical homestead buildings - a log house, separate kitchen, and barn - are authentically furnished. The Visitor Center features a film on Polk's life and civic contributions.
