Located in the historic building most recently known as ‘The Sumpter Supply’, and built as a mercantile in 1899, the building has served the community as a tavern, grocery, gas station, and a liquor store throughout the years. Today the building houses both the Sumpter Municipal Museum and Baker County Library, Sumpter Branch.
The museum contains a wide variety of important artifacts from Sumpter’s Gold Rush mining, timber, and railroad heritage. Thanks to the generosity of the Baker County Library and The Oregon Trail Regional Museum, several high quality photographic collections significant to Sumpter are also on display as part of an expansive photographic archive.
Open Mon & Tues 11 am - 3 pm, Wed 4 - 7 pm, and Thurs-Sat 11 am - 3 pm
