Stories of place through the eyes of its people.
Five Oaks Museum brings Washington County’s many histories to life through a wide range of exhibits that help our community learn and grow together. We work to preserve important objects and stories. We examine local history through multiple lenses. We celebrate the arts, creativity and curiosity. Through our Guest Curator program our exhibitions are built by people telling their own stories, and are developed to be cultural resources for the entire community.
