A 48,200 square foot facility situated on a 54-acre point of land adjacent to the Columbia River and the historic Columbia River Highway, the mission of the Columbia Gorge Discovery Center and Wasco County Historical Museum is "to inspire appreciation and stewardship of the Columbia River Gorge and Wasco County through collection, preservation and interpretation of cultural and natural history resources." Exhibits focus on the volcanic upheaval and raging floods that created the Gorge, unique flora and fauna of the region, and 11,000 years of cultural history. Hundreds of American Indian baskets from throughout the Pacific Northwest, photo archives and local genealogical files available in the William G. Dick Library are just some of what this interpretive center's collection includes.
