White River Valley Museum

White River Valley Museum

Located in Auburn's Les Gove Park, the White River Valley Museum tells the story of South King County from the Native People, through the Settlers, and into the 20th Century.

At the White River Valley Museum, the mixing of diverse cultures is presented in a lively, evocative way. People of the past come to life with diary excerpts, artifacts and photographs. Modern visitors get a taste of the past as they walk through a pioneer cabin, sit in a one-room schoolhouse, stroll along a 1920s street and climb aboard a caboose.
