“The first trail stop in oregon”
Learn about the cultures of the various pioneers who passed through or settled in Ontario. They come from the east and the west, the south and the north - four rivers that converge in the western Treasure Valley, where Oregon borders Idaho. For centuries, the Snake, the Malheur, the Owyhee and the Payette rivers have supported life here, attracting people from all points of the compass. Four Rivers Cultural Center is named for these waterways. The rivers, in turn, represent the constant flow of people of varied ancestries - American Indian, Basque, European, Hispanic and Japanese - people who have made this a diverse and vital region that has opened its arms to many cultures and accepted their differences. The Four Rivers Cultural Center focuses on sharing and celebrating the history, art, and entertainment of the many cultures that have made there home in the Treasure Valley.
