The staff is working on a new display from now until opening time. We have received a collection of local hilltop lookouts from Michal Beck, on loan for this year only. There are some rare and one of a kind photos. The Museum thanks Michal for this loan.
The Heywood family is our pioneer spotlight this year.
We are introducing our 2020 calendar, “Hilltop Heroes” honoring more of our hilltop veterans at our opening. We have updated our Veterans flip board with past and present “Hilltop Heroes” honoring our Veterans.
We also have Weippe Hilltop T-Shirts for sale and we are working on Weippe Hilltop Cups.
