Fuel your imagination with things to see, hear, and touch in our pioneer galleries. See how technology has changed our way of life, yet how our pioneer ancestors would recognize much in our lives today. Learn about our beginnings, and how world events affected life here.
The Cheney Historical Museum and Archive offers the best qualities of small-town America; a friendly, informal place where you are encouraged to look, linger, have a conversation, ask questions, and tell us your story as you learn about ours.
