Long ago, Mason County established itself as one of the nation's most important logging and shellfishing regions—its prolific temperate rainforests turn out unprecedented quantities of both resources. Both this rich natural history and the concurrent cultural history deserve a reckoning at the Mason County Historical Society Museum.
5th Street & Railroad Ave. Sheldon | M-F 11am-5pm | 360.426.1020
History comes to life in Mason County's most extensive collection of historic documents, photos, and artifacts from the timber, shellfish, farming, and early pioneer days. Located conveniently in the heart of historic downtown Shelton, the Mason County Historical Museum is open to the public.
The museum maintains a public library of historical materials including photos, tapes, letters, diaries, periodicals, and newspapers.
