Image Bank

There are tens of thousands of photographic resources associated with the Columbia Basin, unfortunately there was no way of bringing the resource together so that general interest viewers and researchers of all levels could view it - until now!

Time Capsules

Scientists have jousted over concepts of time and relativity for a good long while. Perhaps it's necessary that the discussion be turned over to humanists and historians. Instead of experiments, we have community experience to prove this point!

Interpretative Panels

The Columbia Basin Institute of Regional History has a very simple mission. We want to make history interesting and available to the public. To that end we have developed our heritage interpretation panel project.

Word in the Basin

Have you ever wondered why some people who talk to themselves look so happy? We have a theory...it's because they're whispering great stories under their breath as they putter along. Life's trials and tribulations get spun into something more manageable and compelling. In story form, things aren't quite as perplexing!

Research

We believe that by knowing ourselves and our landscape better, we will understand the impact of events occurring outside the Basin as well as those within. The members of the Columbia Basin Institute are constantly working to encourage new fields of inquiry and to make available the raw materials to support the inquiries.
