Nice exhibits. Out of state family enjoyed learning about Prineville. Some of the western gear is improperly displayed and taken care of though😔

I always have to stop in when I'm in Prineville. Learn about the fascinating history of Crook County. Range Wars, the founding of Les Schwab Tires, and early day transportation are just some of the many stories you can find here.
