Dayton somehow managed to grab Fort Hill's thunder when about 1911 the Fort Hill Block House was moved to Dayton. The Block House is still an attraction in the city park. At first glance not much else catches the eye, but a short drive around the down town discloses several excellent Victorian homes and some nice churches too. The down town itself could use a little help.

Fortunately Dayton sits off the main highway a little. Work is just starting on the Newberg-Dundee bypass. That will allow ever more traffic to whizz by ever faster on the way to the beach. I wonder if Dayton will notice?
