This interpretive center sits in Sacagawea State Park, just outside Pasco, WA., where the Snake and Columbia rivers converge. Lewis and Clark's "Corps of Discovery" camped on this site in the early 1800's when they came through this area.
The park has been here for many years. I remember visiting it as early as 1957 in my youth, and after our junior year in high school, our class had a big party in the park. The party was wild and wooly as the park wasn't supervised back in those days like it is now, and was such a hit with our class that one of our reunions was held there back in the '70's. That too, is getting to be many years ago...but I digress.
The group I hang out with went out here today and sketched and painted the museum. If you ever have the chance to visit this park/museum, definitely visit the museum. It is a good one.
