Since 1951, the Benton County Historical Society has been preserving historical artifacts, photographs, and manuscripts. After Philomath citizens prevented the demolition of the 1867 Philomath College building and placed it on the National Register of Historic Places, The Society opened the building to the public in 1980 as a history museum, research library and art gallery. When Oregon State University closed its museum, the Society acquired the Horner collection and built a new museum in downtown Corvallis, Or. designed by Allied Works Architecture, opening in spring 2020.
