Built in 1993 next to the Ries-Thompson House, the oldest remaining residence in Parkdale (circa 1900), the museum and the house are designated as a National Historic Site. Surrounded by a boardwalk, the property offers a commanding view of Mt. Hood. A USFS amphitheater hosts lectures and demonstrations, and the museum’s collection of rocks, minerals, and Native American artifacts provides valuable resources for numerous areas of study.
