About The History Museum
In 1907, the Hood River County Pioneer Society started collecting documents and artifacts that reflected the diversity and culture of their region. Now those items are housed at The History Museum in a collection that totals 11,000-plus pieces and continues to grow weekly. With a focus on memorabilia that dates from the Native American era to the present, the museum’s exhibits include horse-drawn carriages, phonographs, and the barometer a witch concocted to predict the weather.
To further immerse visitors in the county’s history, the costumed guides of the museum’s annual Cemetery Tales relay historical anecdotes during stops at notable gravesides. The tours are one of many events and educational programs available through the museum, many of which are geared toward kids. Other include yoga sessions that relate different poses to points in history and camps where youngsters learn to throw an atlatl, a spear used by Native Americans.
