The Northwest Carriage Museum, located in Pacific County, is the most-visited tourist attraction in the county, drawing visitors from around the world. On April 5 at noon, the Museum’s Director and Curator will speak about their collection at History Talks at the Schmidt House, a free community event made possible by the Olympia Tumwater Foundation and the City of Tumwater.
