Discovering Our History Today

The Cascade Locks Historical Museum


It’s best to start a story at its beginning; make the Cascade Locks Historical Museum the first page of your visit and you’ll discover plenty about the history of the Columbia River Gorge, and Cascade Locks. Here you’ll find fascinating artifacts of our past as well as information and photographs on Native Americans in the Gorge, historic waterways and Locks, the once-fierce Cascade Rapids, railroads, fish wheels, sternwheelers and steamboats on the Columbia River, Cascade Lock's School history and Much More!

The Historical Museum was founded in 1969 and is managed by a member volunteer commission – they will be happy to see you and eager to take the time to answer your questions. Cascade Locks takes pride in our history, preserved for your enjoyment and that of future generations.
