Aumsville Reviews

2 reviews
Great little town with people who care about their community. This town has had a tornado and many of the community neighbors worked together to help those who had damage to their houses and businesses.
There is a Saturday Market in the summer, a Corn Festival in the fall, and the community is growing.
Review Aumsville
Lovely town, very close to downtown Salem with the country feel. Small town that is welcoming and has everything you could want. Easy to get to I5 and get to Portland or head East to Central Oregon.
