Not just a pretty place, the area surrounding Kimberly has an excellent micro-climate, rich soil and plentiful water from the John Day River, making this a prime area for growing fruit and vegetables, raising livestock, and recreating. The climate is dry and the smiles warm and genuine. Take time on the curves and watch the sides of the road - wildlife is common (especially mule deer) and cattle have the right-of-way in "free range" country.

When the Grande Ronde Valley was settled in the 1860's, the area of this tour was mainly open grassy slopes with a few pine trees and wetlands.  La Grande's original settlement was several blocks south.  The original town site, platted in 1862, included the pioneer campground at what is now Birnie Park.  It was bounded by First through Fourth streets and A through D avenues.  The Oregon Trail became B and C avenues.  The first home stead was built at what is now the cornet of B Avenue and Cedar St and is marked with a memorial monument.
