Meanwhile, the Coos History Museum is one of the few such facilities currently open to the public on the Oregon coast.

The museum’s collections dive deep into the area, from its pre-history through the 1970s.

Established in 1891, The Coos County Historical Society is an Oregon 501(c)3 not for profit organization and the 2nd oldest historical society in the State. For more information about the Society and the Coos History Museum, visit cooshistory.org or email info@cooshistory.org. MORE PHOTOS BELOW
