We’ve partnered with Roadtrippers to provide a great way to plan a trip around Oregon. So start planning your next road trip to here, there or pretty much anywhere in Oregon.
The mission of the Heritage Museum is to preserve and display the history and culture of the river town of Independence and Polk County through collections of artifacts, documents, and photographs and to make them available to the public by means of tours, programming and access to files and to work with other historical groups and community organizations. The museum has many items and exhibits on display including an exhibit on Independence’s history as the Hop Capital of the World, and the “On to Oregon” Cavalcade – a group that retraced the Oregon Trail in a wagon train ending in Independence.
Hours: Wednesday through Saturday 1pm-5pm or by special appointment
