The Museum of Winchester History tells the story of this frontier community carved out of a landscape heavy with Ponderosa pine and Douglas fir. The town is on the ancient summer grounds of the Nez Perce people. Early photographs on display show the Craig Mountain Lumber Company and the mill pond as well as unique pictures of the building of the Camas Prairie Railroad with its tunnels and trestles. Hand wrought tools, clothing, household items and fire-fighting equipment document the struggle faced by the townspeople making a life on the edge of the Camas Prairie.
