Museums Brookings
Chetco Valley Historical Museum

Chetco Valley Historical Society Museum is housed in the historic Blake House, which was built in 1857. The Blake house was once a stagecoach stop and trading post built on a hill overlooking US Highway 101 and two miles south of the Chetco River. The largest monterey cypress in the United States is located on the museum grounds.

Unique exhibits include a small trunk that came around Cape Horn in 1706, a patchwork quilt dating back to 1844, and an Indian dugout canoe. Should these fail to inspire, an iron casting of a woman’s face might do the trick - especially in light of the speculation that this relic was left by an early undocumented landing on the Oregon coast, perhaps by Sir Francis Drake. Drake has been commonly suggested because of the mask’s likeness to Queen Elizabeth.

Extended days and hours in summer.
