Slagle House Museum

Built in 1905, only nine years after the town of Republic, WA was established in 1896, this charming home, turned museum, has been in the Slagle family since they moved into the house in 1909.  A perfect example of a turn-of-the-century, middle-class merchant home, this house still contains much of its original furnishings and personal items; giving visitors a nostalgic glimpse into the lives of the Slagles and their children.

Untouched from 1969 to 2005, the house and its belongings were donated to the Ferry County Historical Society in 2008. The home is now listed with the National Register of Historic Places.
