Visit the Lewis County Historical Museum!

Located in the historic 1912 Northern Pacific Railway depot, the Museum offers interesting displays depicting the early settlements and pioneer life in Lewis County, the oldest county in Washington State.

Explore our permanent and rotating exhibits featuring Lewis County’s vibrant and interesting past. It is a story of the birth of Washington State, as Lewis County is the oldest county in Washington and we were once called the “Mother of All Counties”. The Museum welcomes families with children with our hands-on area and push button Model Train Exhibit! Come experience history as you walk into the 102 year old railroad depot in Chehalis!
