Annual "Horriable" Day Open House
Museum Open 1 -4 PM
Join us for our annual tribute to the Lewis & Clark Expedition. This November we'll enjoy hot cider and history as we remember the “horriable” weather as noted by William Clark in 1805.
This was a mentous part of the journey as the Corps of Discovery neared their goal. They canoed past our site and campted about a mile downriver at what is now known as "The Dismal Nitch". The photo below was taken from the interpretive panels there.
Enjoy the river view, rain or shine, with a cup of hot cider as we commemorate history where it happened!
