This site is located on land once owned by the parents of James K. Polk, the 11th U.S. president. The state historic 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 exhibits on his family and tumultuous presidency.
