History Museum · Museum
A collection of original buildings from the early 1900s homestead era in Fort Rock Valley. Tour six homes, a 1-room country schoolhouse, doctor's office, church, general store, and blacksmith shop. Men like the horse-drawn farming implements and old gas pumps. Women like the primitive kitchens and vegetable garden. Young kids like the old chuckwagon and school. Everybody likes to explore the nooks and crannies of these simple homes, church, and school built before electricity arrived here in eastern Oregon's desert.

  • Very cool place to stop. Great local history on a self guided walking tour. Several different structures and several farm tools too. Everything was well kept and staff was friendly. If your are in the area make sure to see this to your list of places to stop.
  • What an awesome glimpse into history! You can walk around and really experience it here. It makes the pioneer life come to life. The staff were very knowledgeable and friendly. Incredible views of nearby Fort Rock. I've never seen such large arrowhead collections of artistic displays using them like what they had. Check this place out!
