The Harley House in Swan River has been the site of a ten-year restoration and preservation project to make local history and pioneer culture available to the public on a year-round basis. Slowly but surely, as funds become available, a group of dedicated volunteers is working at recreating a historic period in the pioneer log home of the Hugh Harley family, he having been the first land agent and postmaster for the Swan River Valley.

The committee is presently searching for period furniture and accessories. Interpretive displays will then be set up to tell the story of early family life in the valley. The Community Foundation of Swan Valley is pleased to be a part of this project with a grant to purchase authentic antiques.
