Two Rivers Heritage Museum
Welcome to Two Rivers Heritage Museum
We look forward to sharing our history with you.
We invite you to sample some of our treasured collections online and look forward to greeting you in person when you visit us.
Our stories are multi-cultural. We established strong bonds with the Native populations and the diverse newcomers who settled here to start a life of opportunity. The region is abundant in natural resources with fertile ground that made farming a natural for those who settled here. It offered a quality of life and delivered – then, as it still does today.
We invite an understanding of our past, appreciation of the present as we move into our future. Our Historical Society celebrates the lives, hard work and perseverance of those who lived here before us. Respectfully collected and preserved, our archives are a personalized history of our area and range from handmade tools and food gathering supplies, woven cloths or musical instruments and toys.
The Gathering Place at Washuxwal
Inspired by our rich, Native American heritage in the Camas Washougal area, The Two Rivers Heritage Museum Gathering Place at Washuxwal stands as a monument to the native people, who lived in similar plank houses that once stood here along the Columbia River.
