A small, locally run museum and tourist information location. Contains lots of area history and artifacts and the volunteer staff will happy share their stories of life and growing up in the surrounding communities. Fascinating and worth spending some time to listen and learn.

This is such a wonderful little Museum filled with fascinating memorabilia and facts about this tiny town. The people that run this place are pleasant and friendly. Lots to look at and you truly get a feel for what it was like back then.

One of only 3 Great Northern railroad depot left. Great display of historical items by the Okanogan Borderlands Historical Society and the Oroville Visitor Information Center.
