About Us

The Columbia Gorge Veterans Museum is a collaboration between the Mid-Columbia Veterans Memorial Committee* and The Dalles Legion Post 19.

Our mission is to honor military veterans, past and present from all branches of the Armed Forces.

Our vision is to:

  • Represent veterans from Wasco, Sherman, Hood River Counties in Oregon, Skamania, and Klickitat Counties in Washington;

  • Inspire and educate visitors about the region's extensive military heritage; and

  • Educate students in grades K-12 about the region's military heritage through the stories of its veterans.

*The Mid-Columbia Veterans Memorial Committee is a 501(c)3 non-profit established in 2007.
