The Crown Point Country Museum’s groundbreaking ceremony took place on Saturday, April 7, at 36901 E. Historic Columbia River Highway, across the street from the Corbett Fire Hall. The plans include a 5,000-square-foot Interpretive Center that will chronicle the lives of the pioneers, explorers and indigenous people of East Multnomah County. Outdoor displays will pay tribute to the industrial tools that built Oregon, organized around a looping Pioneer Path lined with bricks bought by donors. Indoors, the society will display the artifacts, postcards and records it has collected since its founding in 1970.
The first phase of construction is scheduled to be completed before next winter. The interior work and outdoor displaces await more funding. Rollins says they’ve reached about 60 percent of their goal.
