Calling the old 1912 Northern Pacific Railway Depot home, the Lewis County Historical Museum is the largest resource of history and information about the past of all of Lewis County.
Several exhibits bring what once was to life again throughout the halls of the museum, with a rotating exhibit as the museum’s centerpiece. The exhibit currently ongoing through October pays tribute to the military and focuses on the Civil War and World Wars I and II.
Extensive archives kept in the museum’s records room are catalogued by volunteers, preserving vital links to the history of Lewis County as far back as the 1800s. More than 1,000 books, 5,000 documents and countless photographs are archived and available for the public to view.
The back of the museum is home to the Lewis County Model Railroad Association, which maintains a HO-scale layout of towns throughout Lewis County. The association opens their gatherings to the public the third Friday of each month.
