The Pend Oreille County Historical Society & Museum consists of several buildings, which were taken from different locations and reassembled here. Three log cabins, which were detached and reconstructed on the museum grounds are named as Hunter’s Cabin, the Settler’s Cabin and the Claire HoI Schoolhouse. The replica of a fire lookout has also been constructed by following the blueprints of Forest Service.

The historic I. & W. N. Depot building serves as the main complex, which was built in 1908. The gift shop and displays are located on the first and second floors. The adjacent building, named as Stuart B. Bradley Memorial, was built by utilizing private funds in 1994 and later on dedicated to this museum. There are numerous displays including the library, research department and a military display.

The whole museum is full of relics of the past days. There is a wide range of farm equipment, especially the vintage tractors belonging to an era when machines were first introduced for the agricultural purpose.
