“explore the past of Wallowa County”

The Wallowa County Museum is located in the historic First Bank of Joseph building built in 1888.  The Museum was created in 1976 as a bicentennial project by a group of dedicated volunteers.  Many items in the collection originated with Wallowa County's first historian, John Harley Horner.  Mr. Horner was an early-day assessor who collected artifacts and information as he toured the county.  The remainder of the collection was donated by current and former Wallowa County residents. The building was entered in the National Register of Historic Places in 1978.
