Historical/Ag Tour of Malin



The bus tour will start at 9am both days between the Malin Community Hall, 2307 Front St. (Former Cheese Factory) and Malin City Hall, 2432 4th St. (Former Malin Clinic). Come early to get your seats! Mayor Gary Zieg and Ryan Bartholomew, President of the Malin Historical Society, will conduct the tour. Gary and Ryan will be doing a presentation on Malin’s past, present and future plans. The bus will travel past the Fire Department (Former Malin Elementary School) and show you the current Elementary School on 3rd St where the former Malin High School was located. It will then turn on Rosicky Avenue so you can see the Industrial area that includes Circle C Marketing, Baley-Trotman Farms, and Winema Elevators. From there it will stop at the newest business Cascade Potato for a tour of their facilities.

The tour will then take you down South Malin Road where you will see some of the local crops grown and will turn left on Stateline Road to our airport. The City of Malin received a “Patent” from the government in 1948 for land to build a public airport. The airport was very active.  Pilots sprayed local crops from the 1940’s to present day. Its current use is more for recreational flying. In 2012 the airport was renamed in memory of WW11 Pilot Ehle H Reber, a local hero of Malin. Reber and his crew gave the ultimate sacrifice to our great nation on January 23, 1943,  during his seventh mission over Lorient, France. The tour will show you the airport and the memorial in honor of those that serviced in the military.

The tour will then travel back into the downtown area of Malin where Gary and Ryan will showcase the current businesses and update you on the current happenings! You will have an opportunity to check out the museum, Broadway Theater, Way Station (former Broadway Hall/ skating rink-dance hall) and view the veteran’s park.

Hope you can come enjoy hearing about our wonderful community!

Malin’s 110th Year Celebration

The City of Malin, along with Malin Park, will be celebrating their 110th year of the City and 75th year of the park on July 3-7, 2019.  Historically, this event has drawn thousands of people from Oregon, California, Washington and Idaho; and this year should prove to be no exception.

As Malin celebrates its 110th anniversary and Malin Park celebrates it’s 75th anniversary as Oregon’s very first park district, there are a series of events scheduled for July 3-7.

Events will commence July 3rd with the Malin Royal Firecrackers Pageant, hosted by the Malin Community Service Club.  The Malin Royal Firecrackers is a program developed to instill, within our elementary-aged youth, the idea to give back to the community through community service projects.  This is their 2nd year of being celebrated as a group who serves the community.

Celebrations continue on July 4th with a merchant breakfast, swap meet, parade, 26th Annual Show-N-Shine Car Show, raffle, live music in the park, and a dynamic fireworks show at dusk.

July 5th begins with Historical and Agricultural Tours, a matinee at the Broadway Theater, museum hours from 4-8pm, and Downtown Cruise Night and Street Dance/Concert in the Park with the Kurt Van Meter Band from 6-10pm.

July 6th events start with the 1st Annual Disc-Golf Tournament, Historical and Agricultural Tours, Free Lunch at Noon talent show All Class Reunion, Czech music, Beer Garden, and fun games and activities for the kids.
