Jefferson Co Historical Society

Jefferson County Historical Society was founded in the 1970s. Its mission is to preserve, interpret, and celebrate the history of Jefferson County and Central Oregon. From 1978 to 2012 the Society maintained a museum in the old County Courthouse; currently in storage, the Museum will re-open as soon as possible in a new facility, “Westside Community Center,” after renovations of the former Madras High School are completed.
