The Philip Foster Farm is a historic site in Eagle Creek, Oregon, mostly because of its close connection with the pioneer, Philip Foster. Foster and his family are some of the oldest settlers in the state of Oregon, making the site quite an important historic landmark in the state.

Philip Foster is best known for his contributions in the state. He served as the first Treasurer of the Provisional Government from 1844 to 1845. He also worked closely with Dr. John McLoughlin in the flourmill and cattle company that they founded.

The Philip Foster Farm came later in 1847. It was originally a 640-acre land claim. It is now mostly open to the public, allowing visitors to see the 1847 store replica, 1860s barn, 1883 farmhouse, and the fields. Other structures are also on the site, but are not accessible to the public.
