Pottsville Historical Museum

Located near Merlin, Oregon, an accumulation of Oregon’s past is what you will find at Pottsville. Founded by Eugene “Debbs” Potts to house historical memorabilia for Oregon’s Centennial in 1959, Pottsville is home to thousands of items commemorating Oregon’s history, from its legislative halls to the local logging woods. There are Steam Engines and tractors, old logging and mining equipment, and even a red Stagecoach that used to make the run between Kerby and Crescent City.

Ways to enjoy Pottsville:

  • Horseback Riding/ Carts/ Buggies – Take a ride through history, whether it is riding a horse or being pulled in a cart or buggy, there is lots to see at Pottsville. There are many acres of land to ride your horse. Daily or yearly (with fee).
  • Park and Walk – Leave your vehicle in the parking lot or drive through the gate and find some shade, then “Take a Walk Through History”. The signs not only inform you about the items on display but they offer clues into a linear history of that era.
  • Schedule A Tour – Call or email to plan a tour.
  • Dog Walking – Come out and enjoy some history while you walk your dog. Dogs need to be on a leash. Please pick up after your pet.
