The glories of Gaston revealed
County museum hosts exhibit about small town during May
May is Gaston month at the Washington County Museum, meaning Gaston residents with valid identification can get half-price admission throughout the month, as well as free admission all day Saturday, May 21. Thats when local historians Ken and Kris Bilderback will present a special program about Gaston at 1 p.m.
There will be photos of local petroglyphs, along with stories of Wapato Lake, onion fields and the role second-generation Japanese immigrants played in Gastons development. Videos related to Gastons history will be on a continual loop.
The museum is located in Hillsboros Civic Center on the southeast corner of First Avenue and Main Street, above the Starbucks coffee shop.
