Okanogan County Historical Museum
1410 2nd Ave North.
You are invited to take a walk through the past at the Okanogan County Historical Museum. The primary purpose of the museum is to collect, preserve and interpret the history of the Washington Okanogan, the local American Indian Culture and the Western Tradition.
This outstanding museum is located in the county seat of Okanogan, WA., on business loop Hwy. 215 which connects the downtown districts of Omak and Okanogan. The museum is open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. seven days a week from mid-May to mid-September.
Inside the museum a series of dioramas, models, photographs and displays of relics tell the Okanogan story from early geological to modern times, including the importance of agriculture, mining, timber and cattle to the local economy.
Visit our outdoor Old West town of the early 1900’s. These outdoor displays include farm equipment and what is believed to be the Okanogan’s oldest structure, a log cabin built in 1879. Displays include Main Street, the Ruby Hotel, a blacksmith’s shop, apple warehouse, and post office.
On the outdoor Old West street you will see a replica of the photography studio of one of Okanogan’s most interesting and unique photographers of the early 1900’s. Frank S. Matsura came from Japan and chronicled everyday activities, construction projects such as Conconully Dam and the diverse people of the Okanogan. He left a valuable legacy in the form of glass photographic plates (negatives) from 1903 to his untimely death from tuberculosis in 1913.
Many of these photos are on display in the museum and are available as postcards in the gift shop. A book of his photos, “Images of Okanogan County as Photographed by Frank S. Matsura,” is available.
