The GeerCrest - History

In early 1847, Ralph and Mary Geer left their farm in Illinois and joined Joel Palmer’s wagon train in St. Joseph Missouri. Joel Palmer later became the U.S. Indian agent for the Oregon Country. Palmer first followed the Oregon Trail in 1845 when he helped Sam Barlow scout the Barlow Trail over the Cascade Mountains. The Barlow Trail would enable emigrants from the U.S. an alternative to the treacherous raft trip down the Columbia River to the Willamette Valley. Palmer’s 1847 wagon train was among the first to use the newly opened Barlow Trail. The Geer’s and their four children settled at the location that would one day become their land claim, not far from a small settlement of Silverton.

A nurseryman by trade, Ralph Geer planted out several thousand pear and apple seeds to grow root stock and later traded their root stock for grafting wood to start a fruit tree nursery and fruit farm. They spent the first few years in a log house
