Museum Offers Free Admission Day, Tours


KLAMATH FALLS, Ore. – The Klamath County Museum will offer free admission and “back room” tours on Wednesday, Oct. 17, in celebration of Klamath County’s birthday.

Klamath County was established as a new Oregon county on Oct. 17, 1882, having been partitioned from Lake County.

Special museum hours on Wednesday will run from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. Tours of the museum’s archive conservation spaces and storage rooms will be offered at 2 p.m. and 7 p.m.

“Some of our records go all the way back to the first year of Klamath County’s existence,” said museum manager Todd Kepple. “We’d like to give the public a chance to see some of these materials that usually stay hidden away in storage.”

Examples of materials stored at the museum include tax records, court files, naturalization papers, photographs, newspapers, maps and recordings.
