Old Weathered Piano Lines Shaniko Street

Old Weathered Piano Lines Shaniko Street.  The old Steinway Piano sits on the streets of Shaniko, Oregon. This old Steinway Piano was just left on the street over 100 years ago. It has been weathered by wind, rain, sun and time. But over the 100 years that it has sat on the walkway, it has weathered the true test, that of time.

Ghost  towns are the most interesting places to find oneself. You are alone with the past.  Ponder what was and why things slipped away. What uncertain future awaits them?  Reminds one of how life can be viewed.  Whether you visit when nothing is happening or on the busiest event day of the year, Shaniko has something to share with you. The shops are woven in between the history available: in the museum, along the streets, and on the murals that decorate the buildings. If activity is what you are looking for, see the events pages and be sure to thank the Shaniko Chamber of Commerce, City of Shaniko and the Shaniko Preservation Guild for their dedication.

Shaniko, Oregon was an early 1900s wool shipping center on US 97.  It is in north-central Oregon’s high grasslands.  It is 36 miles north of Madras, and 58 miles south of Biggs. It incorporated in 1901.  The original buildings include a bank, a couple blacksmith shops, two-story wooden city hall/fire station/jail, several hotels, two newspapers, a post office, saloons, school, two stores and many other structures. Church services were held in the school building. Today a handful of people still watch over the old two-story hotel, town hall, livery stables and a strip of wooden buildings.  http://traveloregon.com/see-do/oregon-heritage/ghost-towns/shaniko/
