Presby Museum & Klickitat County Historical Society


Arts, Culture & Entertainment Museum



The Goldendale Presby Museum, organized in 1958, has been a focal point for the Klickitat County Historical Society's mission of preserving and presenting the rich history of Goldendale and Klickitat County. Since its dedication on August 18, 1962, with a keynote address by Supreme Court Justice Wm. O. Douglas, the museum has expanded to include two additional buildings for displaying collections. The first, known as the "Annex," is a 24'x60' space that houses the original Goldendale Sentinel print shop from 1878, as well as collections from other early businesses and the Goldendale Railway Station. In 2002, the Carriage/School House was built to showcase farm equipment and a reproduction of a one-room school house. With an admission fee of $6 for adults, $2 for students, and free admission for children, the museum remains accessible to all who wish to learn about the fascinating history of this region. Thanks to the efforts of the Klickitat County Historical Society and the Goldendale Presby Museum, visitors can step back in time and gain a deeper understanding of the community's past and how it has shaped the present.
