The Eastern Oregon Museum is proud to maintain this historic collection of artifacts, photos, and documents that frame the history of Haines, Baker County, and Eastern Oregon.


Our displays provide a look at the  families who settled the area, and the daily events that shaped their lives. It is a unique, hands-on education that helps foster an understanding of the Haines area and its heritage.


We welcome the opportunity to share our history with you.

Established in 1959, the Eastern Oregon Museum is a non-profit, volunteer organization.


The Museum is housed in the old Haines School Gymnasium. Built with local labor in 1932, the building cost $5,000 to erect. Funds were raised by the Haines PTA and the Haines School District. Over the years it has hosted basketball games, community dances, public meetings and craft fairs. Following WWII, the Haines and Baker School Districts merged, reducing the demand for the building.


The School District deeded the building to the  City of Haines on the condition in remain in the public domain. The City deeded the building to the Eastern Oregon Museum.


The Eastern Oregon Museum depends on the generosity of our members, foundation grants, and donations from visitors to keep our doors open.   


We thank everyone for their continued support.  With your help, we can keep the dust from collecting on our proud and interesting heritage.


We appreciate your contributions!
