Sweet Home Today
Current Attractions
Today, Sweet Home offers a unique and very livable location for families who prefer the small-town lifestyle. It provides the best of both worlds for it is far enough away off the beaten path (I-5 corridor) to be a truly rustic rural community.

People from Sweet Home have prided themselves on their self-sufficiency and community cooperation. Yet the people from this beautiful area can drive less than sixty miles to access two major universities, two metropolitan areas with all of their cultural and shopping opportunities, the state capitol, and endless recreational opportunities.

Sweet Home attracts visitors year round to its undeveloped, hidden beauty. In winter, the snow-capped Cascade Mountains boast both downhill and cross-country skiing. There is excellent deer and elk hunting in the fall.

During the spring and summer, water sport enthusiasts enjoy sailing and water skiing on Green Peter and Foster Lakes. Visitors enjoy fishing on Foster Lake, and campers and hikers use the many available parks and campgrounds around the area.

East Linn County
A stop at the remarkable East Linn Museum is a must for all visitors. The building and grounds display generations of artifacts that depict the many phases of Sweet Home’s rich heritage. Axes, mauls, and cross-cut saws are surviving reminders of early logging methods.

The Weddle Covered Bridge
The Weddle Covered Bridge, a community restoration project that adjoins historic Sankey Park, is not only a favorite location for weddings, anniversary parties, music, and dances, but also the background for the annual Oregon Jamboree.

Recognized as the biggest country music festival in the Northwest, the Oregon Jamboree more than doubles the population of Sweet Home for three days in August.
