The Nez Perce Indians have called this area home for generations, and through the efforts of the museum, people can learn more about this still thriving community. In addition to American Indian artifacts, the museum expounds on the explorations of Lewis and Clark as well as the founding of Lewiston itself.
The small, but entertaining, Lewis-Clark Center for Arts & History is anchored by the talent of local artists and area artifacts. Displays include information on America's most famous explorers, Lewis and Clark. Look for the mural of these great men on the museum's facade.
Water has been cutting Hell's Canyon for eons and has made it the deepest river-carved gorge in North America. Hikers, campers, animal watchers, and even river rafters enjoy the park's raw, arid landscape. With more than 650,000 acres laden with vacation-defining vistas, a visit to Hell's Canyon is ethereal.
