About the museum

The cement block building was constructed in 1920 for use as a funeral parlor by Henry J. Merchant Sr. The facility was donated by the Merchant family to be used as a museum. In 1972, it became the Asotin County Historical Society, and features many hands-on displays.


Most tours are by appointment, so please call 509-243-4659 during business hours, which are Tuesday-Saturday 10 a.m.-2 p.m.
