The Cascade Locks Historical Museum, located in the Marine Park, was founded in 1967. It contains pieces of important history from Cascade Locks, including items pertaining to the building of the Locks, Bridge of the Gods and Bonneville Dam, said a press release. There is a Victorian period theme in the museum as it was once one of three Locks tender homes during the early 1900s and still has many of the period items in place. Historical sternwheelers are another theme of the museum.

The jewel of the museum is the Oregon Pony steam locomotive, the first of its kind to be built on the Pacific Coast, said a museum press release.

The Friends of the Cascade Locks Historical Museum was founded in 2013 by a group of interested citizens who wanted to ensure the Museum’s financial stability and continued operations. The Friends of the Museum is a federally-recognized 501c3 nonprofit.
