Various island families donated original homestead cabins built during the 1870s and the 1890s to the Society. Volunteers disassembled the structures at their original sites, then moved, reconstructed and linked the structures together to create the main museum facility. These cabins now over a hundred years old, house the collections, but are considered important historical artifacts in themselves. Each cabin serves as a space for interpreting specific aspects of Orcas Island history as told through the life stories and material culture of the First Peoples and early European-American settlers of this area.
