Revenue from the gift store and espresso bar are used to support the educational and volunteer programs and services provided by Friends of Vista House as well as for special Vista House projects that help preserve and maintain the building.
The Friends of Vista House Interpretive Store Mission Statement:
“To provide visitors to the Vista House with items which are interpretive of the Vista House, the Columbia River Gorge, the State of Oregon and the Pacific Northwest. The items selected for display and sale in the Interpretive Store may include Gorge history, flora, fauna, geology and geography, Northwest Native American culture, and items related to the Historic Columbia River Highway. Vista House is dedicated to Oregon Pioneers, so items relating to pioneer crafts and skills are also appropriate. Exceptional quality is a requirement for sales items.”
Our hours vary so please see our home page to be sure we are open before heading out! Also, if we are here, be sure and check out the Espresso Bar for specialty coffee, cold drinks and other refreshments.
