Washington County has been home to many innovators, and to celebrate, the Washington County Museum, 120 East Main St. in Hillsboro, is dedicating this month’s Free Family Day to them with the theme “Technology from Primitive to Present Day!”

The event is set for Saturday, May 14.

Guests will have a chance to view the museum’s exhibit, “This Kalapuya Land” and interact with primitive technology, as well as learn about the vibrant history that gave Washington County the nickname Silicon Forest with the exhibit, “Innovation in Washington County.”

Participants will also have the chance to make a craft to take home. The event is free and open to the public.
