Oregon - Canby Depot Museum

Canby, OR - The Canby Depot Museum is housed in one of Oregon's oldest railroad station. The original Articles of Incorporation of the Canby Historical Society refer to the wish for a museum. In the early 1980's the existing Canby Depot facility became available to the society. ​

The Canby Depot had been an active train station at the intersection of N. 1st and Grant Street throughout almost the entire history of the city, but the railroad was going to dismantle the depot unless the facility could be moved. Canby Historical Society was able to raise funds for the move of the depot to it's present location near N.E. 4th and Pine Street adjacent to the Clackamas County Fairgrounds.

​ Canby Historical Society has now had a museum for over 20 years and our members continue the work of organizing and displaying photos, artifacts and exhibits of historic significance, which afford a glimpse of 19th century life in this community.
