The Oswego Heritage House and Museum serves as an historic resource and focal point for our local history. Oswego Heritage Museum's permanent Oswego history exhibit begins with an introduction to local Native American history and continues around the room, bringing you to Oswego's more current history. From time to time, you will also have the opportunity to enjoy a revolving exhibit that focuses on Oswego Heritage Council events throughout the year.

At the Oswego Heritage House, you will find an introduction to the historical and cultural sites of our beautiful city, Lake Oswego. Oswego Heritage House and Museum will house a historic resource center to enhance the community's ability to research and discover information about Lake Oswego. In our foyer, you will find various informational pamphlets on our city's cultural and historical sites. In our parlor library, you will find magazines, books, and other reading material which is available for public use on-site. A computer will also be located in our parlor, with links to information about our local history and culture, such as the database and historic photo collection of the Lake Oswego Public Library.

We encourage you to visit our historic rose garden on the east side of our house, and view a replica of an iron ore cart from when Oswego was "Pittsburgh of the West." The ore cart was donated to the Oswego Heritage Council by a local Boy Scout as his Eagle Scout project.
