Dewitt Depoe Museum and RV Park
In Oregon, a bicycle is legally considered a vehicle, and the same Oregon road laws apply. Please “be seen” and practice safe riding. Vehicle traffic, farm equipment and narrow shoulders exist on many Oregon roads, and you may find that construction projects, traffic or other events may cause road conditions or signage to differ from the map results, ride descriptions and directions. For travel options plus weather and road conditions, visit tripcheck.com, call 511 (in Oregon only), 800.977.6368 or 503.588.2941.

Stop in as a train traveler did over 100 years ago, and learn about the gold mining, logging, and cattle history of the area. This historic building was once the western terminus depot of the Sumpter Valley Railroad, which ran from Baker City to Prairie City from 1909 until 1933. The building was restored in 1979, and now houses 10 rooms full of artifacts from Grant County’s past. To get to the museum from downtown Prairie City, turn south on Main which runs into Bridge Street. The museum will be on your left and is located in Depot Park, where campsites and picnicking facilities are available.
