Home to the finest collection of Western Memorabilia in the Northwest. Over 10,000 Artifacts of Nostalgia. Like Grandma's attic, the museum contains an outstanding collection of household, farming, mining, and pioneer artifacts.
Located on the grounds is the old Union Pacific Railroad Depot, which was built in the 1880's and donated when the railroad discontinued stops at Haines in 1962. There is also a century-old poplar tree from Washington Gulch, with a well-preserved scythe grown into it where a forgetful harvester hung it before the turn of the century.
