We are fundraising to support our museums in Philomath and Corvallis, Oregon

Since 1951, the Benton County Historical Society has been saving local history and culture. From preserving the historic Philomath College building to saving the former Oregon State University Horner museum collection, the Society continues to make our past accessible to our community and future generations. We operate the Philomath Museum in the Philomath College building, which is on the National Register, We preserve our 120,000-object collection in the Johnson Collections Center on the Philomath campus, and opened the Corvallis Museum, designed by Allied Works Architecture in 2021! BCHS is a 501 (c) 3 non-profit organization.
