Welcome to the Dufur Living History Museum

Take a step back in time and experience a slice of country life that is fading quickly.



Dufur’s Rich Heritage


Dufur, a tiny town perched on the edge of the Columbia River Gorge, is a center of dry-land wheat farming that began just after settlers arrived on the Oregon Trail, 175 years ago. 

Visit the Living History Museum to check out old tools, information on living in the pioneer time, and enjoy the picturesque views in Dufur.
