Oregon-grown adults may remember trips to the Tillamook Cheese Factory, munching on curds and staring down at the stainless steel assembly line where the nationally distributed medium cheddar is made. Oregon’s kids may soon have different memories.
The Tillamook County Creamery Association is planning to rebuild the visitor’s center on the Oregon Coast, dramatically expanding the historic, culinary and retail sections for the 107-year-old dairy.
Seattle-based architecture firm Olson Kundig has plans to redesign the current cheese factory, which will be torn down and replaced by a 38,500-square-foot facility complete with a larger cafe, ice cream counter, coffee counter, gift shop, factory viewing area and theater space where visitors can watch videos about the history and creation of Tillamook products.
