The Presby Museum is a historic home in Goldendale, Washington. Managed by the Klickitat Historical Society, it was built in 1902 by W.B. Presby. Visitors can tour the home as well as other two modern buildings on the site which feature other exhibits. One building, the Annex, has the original Goldendale Sentinel print shop dating back to 1878 as well as collections from businesses and the local railway station. The other building, the carriage/schoolhouse building, contains farm equipment and a one-room school house.
