Oards has been in business for 135 years and has had 3 generations at the helm. James and Mavis’ daughter has now taken over the business Located 23 miles East of Burns at the northern end of of the Great Harney Basin, the free museum evolved from Mavis’. collection of Indian antiques, dishes, furnishings, clocks, dolls, and more. Her great- grandparents settled in this area in 1872. Over the years they expanded the store to accommodate the growing collection of art offered for sale. Authentic pieces of pottery, jewelry,ceremonial sand paintings, registered scrimshaw, Navajo rugs, and Native American crafts from southwest, midwest, and local Paiute tribes fill the cases and walls of the store. The collection of Paiute Indian cradleboards is the largest in existence.
