Historical site just north of Sisters, Oregon. The frame of the Hindman barn still stands. Camp Polk was established on this location in September 1865, abandoned seven months later, and the land then homesteaded by the Samuel Hindman family in 1870, one of the first white settlers in the Oregon territory. Just up the hill from the barn is Camp Polk Cemetery, dating to 1875. Of course, Native Americans were in this area for at least 8000 years prior.
