Siuslaw Pioneer Museum

See the history

From the SPM lobby visitors can enter the south section of the building that illustrates how folks in the region supported themselves. Hunting, trapping, gathering, agriculture, fishing, fish canneries, logging, sawmills, shipping, ship building, trade and commerce were the economic engines of the region. On display are artifacts and displays that illustrate and inform visitors about these activities and the role each played in the growth and development of the area. Along with the video display in the lobby, visitors can view a Siuslaw Pioneer Museum DVD production about the early history of the area and about ships and the maritime trade that carried goods and services to and from the Siuslaw.
