Milwaukie Museum

Free, donations accepted

This beautiful small museum was originally the George Wise family farmhouse, built on Lake Road in 1865. Former owners of the house, United Grocers, Inc., donated the structure to the Milwaukie Historical Society. The historic house was moved and restored through the combined efforts of the Society members, the entire community and a bicentennial grant. Dedication took place June 7, 1975.

Special guided tours for school classes, scouts, clubs and small groups during the week can be arranged by appointment.

Star attraction on grounds of Milwuakie Historical Society is "Old No. 3," a horse-drawn streetcar dating from 1872, originally serving Portland Street Railway Co. As the sole survivor of the area's earliest streetcars, "Old No. 3" was restored and became property of the Milwaukie Historical Society.
