Sherman County Historical Society and Museum
Open Daily 10 until 5 May through October
The Museum comprises 16,000 square feet and over 15,000 artifacts used in Native American families, Oregon Trail migration, rural households, churches, schools, businesses, livestock production, dry-land wheat farming and conservation, military units and patriotic efforts.
Over 70 of the county's 2,000 residents volunteer at the Museum. We are a unique non-profit county museum with interpretive exhibits of tools and equipment used by families in wheat and livestock production, homes, businesses, schools and churches on the Columbia Plateau, and hands-on experiences for everyone!
We are the 70 plus friendly volunteers at the Sherman County Historical Museum! The museum is the 1994 recipient of the American Association for State and Local History's prestigious Corey Award for vigor, scholarship and imagination... something like an Oscar for small volunteer operated museums!

The museum is raising money to switch over to LED lighting and needs your help buying LED bulbs and lights for the Sherman County Historical Museum. Replacing light bulbs used in the museum exhibits to LED will reduce power usage, minimize heat generated, and also eliminate the need for filters all while improving light quality and efficiency. Presently the lighting system is running at full capacity and no additional canister fixtures can be added but by transiting to LED more lights can be added since they use less electricity.
Sherman County Journal Collection Gets New Life
A Kluge job press, a Miehle flat bed press, and a Linotype with Self-Quadder are on the minds of the Sherman County Historical Society's Museum Team.

Storytellers, Detectives, Editoris and Historians......
Storytellers are greatly appreciated by the readers of Sherman County: For The Record! Are you thinking about writing a story about your family, an event or someone in Sherman County? How about collecting stories to share? Or interviewing interesting people? Or… being interviewed as you tell your story? On Tuesday, March 18th at 10 a.m., storytellers are invited to gather at the Sherman County Historical Museum in Moro to talk about our Sherman County stories and to learn about the process used in sharing them in the twice-yearly local history publication, For The Record. The interim editorial team, volunteers Mark Fields, Sherry Kaseberg and Chris Sanders, are prepared to tell it like… the fun it is… start to finish, pulling it all together.
