Founded by Eugene "Debbs" Potts to commemorate Oregon's Centennial
in 1959, Pottsville is home to thousands of items commemorating
Oregon's history, from it's legislative halls to the local logging
woods. Pottsville is the "Home of Oregon Memories."
Step back in time with two museums, a Pioneer Town and lots of Outdoor Exhibits.
" I want to perpetuate a place where a poor man or rich can go to look at things for free and learn a little about Oregon History. People need to understand our past."
~ Debbs Potts

WAYS TO ENJOY POTTSVILLE
Horseback Riding/ Carts/ Buggies
Take a ride through history, whether it is riding a horse or being pulled in a cart or buggy, there is lots to see at Pottsville. We have many acres of land to ride your horse. Fee is $5 a day or $60 a year. The yearly rate will have some restrictions as when to ride such as "During an Event" or "Severe weather conditions".
Park and Walk - Leave your vehicle in the parking lot or drive thru the gate and find some shade, then "Take a Walk Through History". Our signs not only inform you about the items on display but they offer clues into a linear history of that era. If, by chance, we see you walking around and we are not busy, we will be happy to show you the museums.
Schedule A Tour - Please call 541-476-7319 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to plan a tour. One of our directors will call you back to arrange a time that works for you.
Dog Walking - Come out and enjoy some history while you walk your dog. Dogs need to be on a leash. Please pick up after your pet.
Picnics - Come out for some history then find a shady spot and have a bite to eat. Picnic tables are also available. No alcohol or drugs allowed. Please take your trash with you.
