The History Museum has a wonderful and diverse collection of documents, newspaper clippings and reference materials available by request for researchers, students and genealogists.

The research archives are open and staffed on Mondays from 11 – 4 only, or by prior arranged appointment. If you are planning a trip to Hood River to conduct research, please call ahead or fill out the research request form so we can provide you with a research assistant. For more information, or to contact museum researchers, email
