Dufur Living History Museum

Located in Dufur, Oregon offers the visitor grand vistas, great outdoor recreation, and a glimpse into another era. Wheatfields and cherry orchards dot the hills that surround the town and provide the largest sweet cherry crop in the world.  Visitors enjoy the beauty and bounty of the land, the friendliness of its people, and the sunny, clear skies. Take a step back in time and experience a slice of country life that is fading quickly. Dufur, a tiny town perched on the edge of the Columbia River Gorge, is a center of dryland wheat farming that began just after settlers arrived on the Oregon Trail, 175 years ago.

Visit the Living History Museum to check out old tools, information on living in the pioneer time, and enjoy Dufur. At the museum, you can view tools used to farm and maintain the land from centuries ago, learn about a day in the life of a pioneer farmer and family, and step inside some of the preserved homesteads.
