Our latest collectible 
Wooden Money.

The South Thurston County Historical Society is working with the Tenino Chamber of Commerce on the $21 2021 Wooden Money project which helps with the Small Business Recovery Program.  These are available for purchase at the Tenino Depot Museum.  They cost $20 but are worth $21 when spent at participating businesses in Tenino.   


The Pioneer Village will participate in the 2021 Oregon Trail Days. The fourth weekend in July!

The Tenino Depot Museum is a labor of love of the 
South Thurston County Historical Society.
