GeerCrest farm & Historical Society inspires and instructs a new generation to live in awareness and appreciation for the inter-connectedness of all aspects of life. The historic house and grounds serve as a living classroom for place-based education and experiential learning. The farm is nestled in the Waldo Hills area east of Salem, Oregon. The homestead was established in 1848 by pioneers Ralph and Mary Geer. The house they built in 1851 still stands and is still owned by Geer descendants.
