Historic Mural: The Saga of Wenatchee
This is a WPA mural created in 1939 by Peggy Strong. This mural, original to the building, depicts the history of postal service in the region. It belongs to the people of the USA, and is catalogued by the Smithsonian
Step back into a time when the pioneers were just beginning to discover the wonders of the Wenatchee Valley. Browse the General Store, sift through the miner’s shack or step into the log-walled Mission Hotel. In all, 20 original pioneer buildings filled with authentic period furniture and all the tools of the day transport you back to the late 1800’s. The Museum itself is a treasure trove of historic artifacts and displays on the Native Americans and pioneer people who first inhabited this land. The Museum, located at 600 Cotlets Way in Cashmere, is open from March through December, but scheduled tours are welcome year-round.
Chelan County Public Utility District welcomes you to one of the most exciting and innovative interpretive museums in the West, The Rocky Reach Museum of the Columbia located on the fourth floor of the Rocky Reach Dam powerhouse. It shows the West as it really was—settlers and Native Americans, steam boaters, lumbermen, railroaders in life-size photos. Stand inches away from a historical tramway reconstructed from original parts.
Its fun, it’s exciting, and you can make it last as long or short as your day allows.
