Gilliam County Historical Museum (Silas A. Rice Log House)
Originally built in 1884 by Silas A. Rice, this one room building was once a farmstead house, a schoolhouse, brothel and barbershop. Today it is the Gilliam County Historical Museum and features displays about early pioneer, Oregon Trail and agricultural history. Notable locals such as former Tonight Show band leader Doc Severinsen and two nobel prize winners are also represented in the museum's collection. It is located about two miles from its original location on a corner of the county fairgrounds, just next to Burns Park. It is the only structure in eastern Oregon built with hewn logs and was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1991.
