The Livery Station houses a Blacksmith exhibit, an antique carriage and freight wagon, and a peak into a pioneer cabin’s interior.
The walls of the Livery Station are lined with boards from dismantled historic barns near North Powder and Cove. The boards were used by museum carpenter/craftsman David Schmidt to create scaled false fronts of a barn, office and retail shop.
The museum’s exhibits tell the stories of people, places and times, beginning with pre-settlement and continuing through the twentieth century. Newly created in 2015, the General Store invites museum guests to step into the past to view shelves filled with items used in daily life during the early 20th Century.
