Sherman County Historical Society and Museum
Open Daily 10 until 5 May through October

Just minutes from the Columbia Gorge National Scenic Area, Sherman County Historical Museum is located in Moro, a small farming community in north central Oregon. The rich rolling land between the John Day, Columbia and Deschutes Rivers, once carpeted with wind-blown bunchgrass, now supports 
amber waves of grain! 

Traveling Interstate 84 between Portland and Pendleton, drive South on U.S. Highway 97 to the community of Moro.  The museum is located next to the Moro City Park on the east side of Highway 97.  Park your car in the lot and walk across the covered bridge to the museum.
