Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the Frazier Farmstead Museum is a wonderful display of the area’s rich history. The site, which sits upon six acres, was settled by W.S. Frazier, the community’s founder, and was continuously occupied by the Frazier family for 115 years. The actual home was constructed in 1892 and today houses a grand collection of antique furnishings, many of which are original items in the home, and other items reminiscent of the 19th century. In addition to the home, the farmstead houses a 1918 barn, a carriage house and a number of other structures that all played a role in the working farm. The museum is open April through December, Thursday through Saturday, from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., and is available for special group tours and rentals.

The Tamástslikt Cultural Institute, located at the Wildhorse Resort & Casino, offers guests a chance to learn more about the history and culture of those who have called this region home for more than 10,000 years. The institute pays tribute to the Cayuse, Umatilla and Walla Walla Tribes through exceptional exhibitions, unique artwork and fantastic year-round events.

In nearby Pendleton, patrons can immerse themselves in the history of Umatilla County at the Heritage Station Museum. Operated by the Umatilla County Historical Society, the museum is housed within Pendleton’s 1909 train depot. Galleries are lined with interesting exhibits within the museum, while outside guests can hop on a Union Pacific Railroad caboose, visit the 1879 one room Byrd Schoolhouse and stroll through the 1879 Fix Cabin and Homestead.

The surrounding areas in Umatilla County and the Walla Walla Valley offer even more of a diverse selection of modern art galleries and museums, plus live stage theatre, concert and symphony performances. The Fort Walla Walla Museum Complex, Walla Walla Symphony, Harper Joy Theater at Whitman College and Walla Walla Little Theater are among some of the many choices.
