History Materializes

From photographs, antiques, equipment, and texts — you name it (or donate it) and we have it.

The Polson is home to the most extensive local collection of Grays Harbor history. We actively collect artifacts from past and present, with just one goal in mind, to preserve local history for future generations.

Harbor history is especially well represented in the Polson's photography collection. Now numbering over fifteen thousand items, our collection marks the passing scene in all its geographic and social diversity. We have a window on every scene.

Rollin' on the River

The one to the right is a special favorite, a Fourth of July Log Roll on the Hoquiam River circa 1910. (Makes you want to join in, doesn't it?) Like these Harborites, we offer good times.
