Washington County in a Nutshell
Our popular Washington County in a Nutshell exhibit has moved into the Collins Gallery. We are excited to be able to present an expanded and updated exhibition highlighting the history of Washington County from the Native Americans and early explorers up through the today’s high-tech industry.
1853 Old Log Jail
Also at the Museum, visitors will find the fully restored original 1853 Washington County Log Jail building. The 1853 Washington County Log Jail has been moved out of the Collins Gallery inside the Museum and onto the concrete pad outside. This allows more exhibit opportunities in our gallery and also increases the visibility of this historic building that has been under our stewardship since 2002.
Changing Collectors Cabinet Display
The Museum’s popular Collector’s Cabinet changes six times a year and features the private collections of members of the local community.
