About Independence Heritage Museum
281 S 2nd Street, Independence, OR 97351, US
The mission of the Heritage Museum is to collect and share the natural history and diverse cultural heritage of the river community of Independence.
Independence was known as the "Hop Capitol of the World" from the 1890s to the 1940s, but the history of our City is so much more than just hops. The Heritage Museum is a local history museum, one block from Independence's historic downtown and Riverview Park Amphitheater, with tour bus parking available at the park near the river. Independence is on a Cycle Oregon scenic route, a Paddle Oregon river route, the Willamette Bird Watching area, Ankeny Wildlife refuge, and a short drive from dozens of wineries.
