Mountain Gateway Museum

A building constructed of river rock that sits near the center of town and along Mill Creek. Inside, a 14- minute video in a small screening room reveals the story of the town's rich history. The museum is actually the old community center, built in 1937 as a WPA project. 

On one level, visitors will find tools and other household items used by the pioneers. The second level offers a view of what the inside of a log cabin looked like in the frontier days. On the grounds, you will find two log cabins that have been moved to the property, believed to have been the site of the original fort. To celebrate its history, each April the town throws a big party called Pioneer Day with reenactors, music and food.
