Restoration of the depot began following the formation of the Historical Society in 1976. Located in an 1883 Columbia-Puget Sound Line depot, the museum features exhibits of 19th-century Americana including antique machinery, a Western jail and replicas of a country doctor's office, coal mine entrance, coal car and a caboose.
Open Thursday 9-3, Saturday and Sunday 12-3 pm. Call for scheduling of tours.
This is just one of the many Historical Museums located throughout Washington.
The Museum was opened on June 6, 1982, in a gala celebration honoring the One Hundredth birthday of Black Diamond. An estimated 3,000 persons attended. Since the opening day the attendance has been rewarding. People from all over the world appear on the guest register.
Today, the Black Diamond Historical Museum takes the visitor back to the turn-of-the-century with a reproduced country doctor's office, coal mine entrance, coal car and a caboose.
