DescriptionIn the 1930s Tenino gained national attention when it issued wooden dollars after a local bank failed. This unusual solution worked and the dollars have since become collectors' items. A more durable local resource is the sandstone quarried nearby, which has been used in public buildings throughout the region, as well as in many of Tenino's commercial and residential structures.
The Tenino Depot Museum , 2 blocks south of Sussex St. at 399 W. Park St., is housed in a 1914 railroad depot. Displays include sandstone and wooden money exhibits, a 1920s doctor's office and a logging exhibit. Tours are available by appointment. Phone (360) 264-4321, or (360) 264-7273 for tour information.
