Yamhill as described in 1940 [1]

Yamhill, on the North Yamhill River, half hidden in orchards and groves, is one of the oldest agricultural centers in the Willamette Valley. At present it has a bank, a tile factory, a planing mill and a granite elevator. In the 1840s it was one of the most important trading points in Oregon country.
