Watch Now: DESTINATION OREGON

Harrisburg Area Museum

Many small towns have historical museums to share the legacy of their past. But in this week’s Destination Oregon, Dave Jones takes us to a small Willamette Valley farming community in Harrisburg that boasts a huge historical museum, which includes a truly one-of-a-kind exhibit.

A special thanks the Harrisburg Area Museum and to our Destination Oregon sponsor, Bi-Mart Membership Discount Stores , for giving us the time and resources to take you to some of our state’s most beautiful and interesting locations every Thursday night on Central Oregon Daily.
