This beautiful small museum was formerly the George Wise family farmhouse, built on Lake Road in 1865. Later owners of the house, United Grocers, donated the structure to the Milwaukie Historical Society. The historic house was moved and restored thanks to the combined efforts of the Society members, the entire community, and a bicentennial grant. Dedication took place June 7, 1975.


* Guided tours on weekdays for school classes, Scouts, clubs, and other small groups can be arranged by appointment. Please Email Us
