Sweet Home is built on the site of a prehistoric forest, which makes it a favorite destination for rock hounds. There is plenty of camping, and hiking trails to explore as well. Sweet Home is also an excellent place to settle in for sportsmen. Hunting, boating, and fishing can be done year-round, and skiers are only 45 minutes from recreation.
A stop at the East Linn Museum is a must for all visitors. The building and grounds house generations of artifacts that depict the many phases of Sweet Home’s rich heritage. Axes, mauls, and cross-cut saws are a surviving reminder of early logging methods. Be sure to go and see the Weddle Covered Bridge, a community restoration project, that adjoins historic Sankey Park.
The Sweet Home Chamber of Commerce and Visitor Center stands as the unified voice of the business community. Our goal is to promote, protect and improve businesses and business opportunities in Sweet Home and through our regional partners.
