“A unique collection of pioneer and military artifacts”
Take a tour of our unique collection of pioneer and military artifacts and antique wagons at one of the old west's most pivotal places in history. You will enjoy viewing our exhibits and walking on the grounds of this military fort, built during the 1800s. Fort Dalles Museum houses an historic collection of wagons and antique vehicles. The collection holds over 30 wheeled vehicles, including a stage coach, buses, road-building equipment, a covered wagon, two horse-drawn hearses, and two surreys, one of which was owned by Oregon Governor Zenas Moody. A portion of these antique vehicles were entrusted to the care of the museum by the American Legion Post #19. In addition, several early 1900's vintage automobiles give visitors a look into the past of the "horseless carriage."
Cal and Mary were an absolute pleasure. Their local knowledge and personable nature made this stop unforgettable.
