The History Center started as a limited term project for the City Centennial and has developed into a very good quality local museum to highlight the settlement and development of a rich timber and fishing economy that continues into the present day. Great photographs and a collection of oral histories.

Our family has displayed a old telephone switchboard that was used in my husband's grandparents home many years ago. We always take family by when they visit. Toledo does a great job with the history center.

This place is neat and free. There are a lot of old photos here. I spent about forty five minutes here. There is a lot of old creepy logging equipment.

We visited Toledo on a Sunday and just about everything was closed. As with most rural northwest towns it started with lumber. After using up trees large enough for lumber they then switched to pulp and paper. The volunteer at the museum told us about his life growing up in the town. One interesting thing he talked about was the town is known for it's boat repair and some of the fishing boats from the show "Deadliest Catch" come there for repairs.

The little Toledo History Center offers a clear look back into the regions logging history. Place is run by friendly volunteers, and is a worthwhile stop while you tour the artists' places on Main Street.

Spruce forests drove prosperity in this town, named by a business man's son due to loneliness for Ohio. The miles long, tightly moored log 'rafts' pictured on each wall and the labor intensive logging depicted, along with the historic railroad, make a visit to this little museum worthwhile. Toledo was a veritable boom town for many years, burning and rebuilt. We also visited across the street, a small Art gallery of sorts, more like an antique shop combination. Finding a couple of unique items, portable typewriter and stereo optic microscope, from US history, made the visit worthwhile. To us and to the easy to work with owner, who thanked us, it was the first business he has had for two days in the waning tourist season, definitely his best sales. As on each coastal Oregon trip, we will happily return.

Toledo, celebrating their centennial a few years back, has a nice little museum downtown explaining the history of their fine city. It's a small standard museum you will find almost anywhere, but taking 20-30 minutes to see it's history is worth a stop. A lot of photos and exhibits make up the museum. Learning about the logging and other businesses along the Yaquina River were interesting, but the most intriguing thing was how the town had a waterfront district at one time. It burned down and was never rebuilt. I saw signs near the courthouse that there might be another museum in the courthouse, but I'm not sure. They may have moved it. Toledo and it's museum is a nice break on a coastal vacation if you're visiting the busier cities like Newport and Depoe Bay.
