Owner description: From the moment you enter the Franklin County Historical Museum you will be treated with true historical hospitality! Whether you choose to enjoy our collection of artifacts and information at your own pace or receive a personalized tour from one of our gracious tour guides, you will not be disappointed as you stroll through the history of our area. Marvel at the stunning architecture of the original Carnegie Library built in 1911 that proudly houses our museum. The high ceilings and beautifully restored ornate dark wood trim create an authentic period atmosphere. Our wide-ranging collection of historic artifacts, photographs and information help tell the story of the unique history of Franklin County. Learn about the role of the Northern Pacific Railroad in founding the city of Pasco, the county’s rich and very diverse agricultural history, the effects of three merging rivers on the local economy, and the growth of the area due to WWI and WWII. Franklin County Historical Society and Museum is a non-profit organization dedicated to saving Franklin county’s unique history. Take time during your visit to stop in our unique gift shop stocked with Washington and area souvenirs that will be sure to provide the perfect keepsake of your trip or gift for friends and family. Plan to visit us during your stop in the Tri-cities to experience historical hospitality at it’s finest!

Well actually I haven't gone, but experienced outreach by reinactors from the museum at the Farmer's Market.

many collectibles and great photos from the past, gave a real sense of knowing what it must have been like in the early stages of the area's development
