About meOur name--Des Chutes--originated when French explorers referred to the riviere des chutes, meaning the river of the falls. They were referring to the falls where the Deschutes River empties into the Columbia River. The name was applied to early post offices and eventually simplified into the modern deschutes.

Since 1980, the Des Chutes Historical Museum has been located in the historic Reid School, located at 129 NW Idaho, Bend, Oregon.

The Museum abounds with history and relics of the past lives of Deschutes County. Explore life along the obsidian routes with the native people who passed along the Deschtues River and fur trapping with early explorers; see the logging and railroad barons racing to settle the last open spaces amidst the Ponderosa Pine forests; meet the pioneers of Deschutes County who settled along the river and raised their children, grew their crops or started businesses and prospered. Explore this and more inside our Museum!
