Officially incorporated in 1902, the small town of Cle Elum holds onto its past. Discover how it preserves history with a visit to its unique museums. Enjoy lunch and wine at Suncadia’s Swiftwater Cellars and then step back in time at the Carpenter House Museum & Art Gallery, a mansion from 1914 that belonged to the town’s first successful banker and former mayor. Original furnishings and local artwork transport you back to the early days of the 20th century. Next, a docent-led tour of the South Cle Elum Rail Yard’s Milwaukee Road Depot and rail museum will provide a glimpse into the golden days of train travel. Finally, we’ll check out Cle Elum’s Telephone Museum, the oldest west of the Mississippi, with displays covering technology from 1901 to 1970. Cle Elum was one of the last cities in the country to use a manual telephone switchboard. Trip includes motor coach transportation.
