Thank you to our sponsors!

We have several volunteer opportunities available!

Volunteer at the Living History Museum. You get to meet a lot of interesting people from all around the world, share the history of Dufur and the surrounding area. Don't worry if you don't know much history: it's part of the fun to learn new things about well-known places in our area. You can be partnered with an experienced volunteer as you learn.

Perhaps you would rather help with the gardening and cleaning? Help is always appreciated!

Helping with events is also fun. We hold a number of events through out the year and can always use help.

If you enjoy local history and want to be a volunteer, please give us a call at 541-467-2205. There is a place for you here!


The Dufur Historical Society gladly accepts monetary donations in any amount. Donations are tax-deductible. For more information or to arrange a donation, contact us at 541-467-2205.

We also accept donations to museum exhibits - historical objects or information are always welcome. If you have something you would like to donate, contact us at 541-467-2205.

Of course, we have needs for more general items in the museum as well. Right now, we have a need for sheets! We've recently expanded several displays in the Metzentine building and need sheets to cover the displays during the winter. If you have any extra or old sheets that you would be willing to donate, please contact the Museum Office at 541-467-2205.
