The Caples House Museum complex occupies a whole city block in the historic locality of Columbia City Oregon. Here, in 1870, on the banks of the beautiful Columbia River and with a majestic view of Mt. St. Helens, Dr. Charles Green Caples built his two-story home from logs cut near Monticello Washington, now called Longview. Perched on a hillside above the Columbia River, the historic home of the Caples Family is a time-capsule in history. There is a tool shed, Knapp Center and Children's Attic.
On a hillside west of the entrance to Champoeg State Heritage Area, above the banks of the Willamette River, stands the Newell Pioneer Village. Within the village are the Robert Newell House Museum, Pioneer Mothers Memorial Cabin, Butteville School and the Butteville Jail. A variety of Living History Interpretation and Reenactment Events for adults and children happen often at Newell Pioneer Village. Dinners, teas, dancing, festivals, picnics, caroling, and more with vintage treats and music to entertain you.
