The Dalles has a lot of history with Oregon Trail, Lewis & Clark, and even a gold rush passing through here. Several buildings on site brought in to accompany the Surgeon's Quarters building which is in its original location. Displays are well labeled and packed into the small rooms. All but one historic clock are donations to the museum and in "authentic" (as opposed to "restored") condition. This is especially true of the vehicles building. We had an excellent tour of the Anderson Homestead buildings just south of the main museum by Sam Anderson, great grandson of the original owner. This building gave you a genuine peek into the struggles of early settlers in this area.
