    This is a small-town museum that is proud of their local history. The early 1900s school building housed 1st through 12th grade students until is closed at the end of the 1968 1969 school year.

    Especially interesting is a first / second grade classroom left as it was the day the school closed. This time capsule serves as a reminder of what was involved in teaching and attending elementary school in that era.

    Along with school artifacts are a plethora of other items important to community members ranging from horse-drawn wagons to medals win in various competitions.

    This is one of those "off the beaten path" museums worth a side trip when visiting north central Washington state!

    Power and water, so good for a couple three days rv camping. Has a dump site that’s free if you stay on the grounds. Nice beach and we went in the off season when it was very quiet. Look forward to returning

    Very informative and well laid out, it showed the history of the area and town. The person working there was quite knowledgeable and easy to talk with.

    We hiked the trail on a sunny afternoon. Beginning at an orchard, we walked down to the river and crossed a steel bridge about 90 ft above the river and walked the trail built on an abandoned railroad bed, so the path is wide and level. The gorge has interesting rocks, and occasional rapids in the river below. Sections of the trail are shaded, and some exposed to the sun in the afternoon. The trail ends in a little over two miles with a viewpoint of the waterfalls over Enloe Dam on the river. On the return walk, we saw a heron fishing on the river and a hawk eating a fish on the rail of the bridge. We completed the walk in about 1 hour and 45 min at a leisurely pace. It’s a beautiful walk in a scenic gorge.

    This is a small course with a beautiful view and well worth the visit. Don't let its size fool you, this course is a challenge.

    When you set out on the road less traveled, you never know where the next turn will take you, and you don't know if there will beverages. :-) For the adventurous North Central Washington traveler, the Okanogan Highlands Scenic Loop will deliver you to the quaint Western-facaded micro town of Chesaw, home of the 4th of July Rodeo. Green hills surround the meadows of Myers Creek, cows moo in the distance and deer barely look up from their munching to note your passing. There are 4 businesses in Chesaw, the Mercantile and Chesaw store for groceries, the famous Chesaw Tavern that exudes authentic old west neighbor cheer, and low and behold, an art gallery with espresso called Fiona at Chesaw. Comfy chairs await the weary traveler, who can order up a latte, coffee or tea, relax with local company and peruse the works of local artists, read local history in the free library, and maybe play a tune or two with local musicians who hang out with the owner and jam when time allows. Gardeners share plants and produce, fiber artists knit and talk, and folks wander in to relax and enjoy a homemade scone or two. I love dropping by Fiona Gallery, sitting and talking with whoever drops in and catching up on local happenings. Visitors from around the world find their way here, share their stories, escape the rain or heat. Lost Lake is about 9 miles up the road, so it's a good place to hydrate if you are on a bike. You can also find adorable vintage second hand items and handmade cards and other crafts. Fiona at Chesaw is a great place to stop in and taste the local flavor. Friendly, affordable and unique.
