The staff was so helpful & bent over backwards to help us. We came here to research our family history in the Yakima Valley. Wiley City is named after our Great, Great Grandpa They spent several hours helping us pull up old photos, land maps etc from the 1800s. The Museum has original county books of land tracks, maps & official books of brands from way way back. The best part was when Mike saw a notation on collections & went down in the basement & brought up the actual Brand our family used back in the 1870s as well as a pair of boots our G.G.GF wore (boy he had small feet). Both Mike & John had quite extensive knowledge of the area & founding families in the area. What an awesome trip. The museum has a great Kids area with exhibits as well as an old time soda fountain on the back side of the museum (since blueberries in season I had a blueberry shake). The museum is open from 10-5 Tues - Sat. Can't thank the staff enough for the personal attention they paid us during our visit.
