Mcmenamins Historic Edgefield Manor
As the wheels churn, the grapes squash and the sour juice squishes out of the ripe fruit with a squissssssssh. With each turn of the wheel the scene moves a decade back in time to the earliest recorded history of the place.
Looking at the Edgefield now, it becomes hard to imagine that the place could have been a farm house at one time or another in the rich and varied account of the "one in all" recreation spot now.
As hard as it may be to believe today, the Mc Menamins owned Edgefield was built in 1911 on the piece of land which previously served as the Multnomah County Poor Farm.
A self-sufficient farm, the locales were engaged in raising hogs, poultry, growing a variety of fruits and vegetables, operating a dairy, cannery and meat packing plant as well as working in the laundry, kitchen and hospital.
The Multnomah County Poor Farm was renamed the Multnomah County Home and Farm in 1947 and in the late fifties the farm operation was eliminated. In 1962, the farm was replaced with a nursing home under the name Edgefield Manor that continued operations for two decades before being closed down in 1982.
The Multnomah County Home and Farm changed ownership in 1990 and the Mc Menamin brothers became legal owners of the property. Immediately, the Mc menamin brothers began renovation of the condemned building.
In phases spanning over four years, the buildings and land were transformed into a unique European-style village, including lodging, a pub with a movie theater, fine dining, a winery, a brewery, distillery, golf course, gardens, vineyards, artwork, meeting, wedding and banquet space, and special events year round.
