Located near Merlin, Oregon, an accumulation of Oregon’s past is what you will find at Pottsville. Founded by Eugene “Debbs” Potts to house historical memorabilia for Oregon’s Centennial in 1959, Pottsville is home to thousands of items commemorating Oregon’s history, from its legislative halls to the local logging woods. There are Steam Engines and tractors, old logging and mining equipment, and even a red Stagecoach that used to make the run between Kerby and Crescent City.

Outdoor exhibits open 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Tours of museum and pioneer town by appointment.
