Crown Point Country Museum

In 2010, a measure on the Multnomah Country ballot to help fund the Oregon Historical Society and the five East County museums passed with a wide margin. The Crown Point Country Historical Society was awarded a portion of this tax-payer funded initiative.

After the award, a 2.69-acre parcel on the Historic Columbia River Highway in Corbett was selected for purchase and plans to build a museum/Interpretive Center to house and share the collection began. Meeting the requirements of the county, state, and federal agencies is presently underway.

Crown Point Country Museum

In order to preserve and share this rich history of the Crown Point country, a dedicated group of individuals in the area established the Crown Point Country Historical Society in the early 1970’s and became a 501c3 in 2004.  From that point forward, the Society has been collecting artifacts, historical photos, a large collection of paintings from local artist Charles W. Post, antique equipment, logging equipment, and other memorabilia . In addition to the museum building, there will be numerous covered outside exhibits to display larger donated items such as a recently donated a covered wagon.
