About Benton County Historical Society and the Corvallis Museum

Since 1951, the Benton County Historical Society (BCHS) has been preserving historical artifacts, photographs and manuscripts in order to interpret and make them available to the broader public.  After Philomath citizens advocated for the preservation of the 1867 Philomath College building and placed it on the National Register of Historic Places, the Benton County Museum opened to the public in 1980. Its audiences include students, researchers, visitors to and families from Benton County as well as the Oregon State University community. Its programming includes exhibitions drawn from its collections as well as shows of quilts, fine art and traveling works.

The Museum’s collections grew over tenfold in 2005, when Oregon State University transferred legal ownership of its Horner Collection to BCHS. The Horner Collection includes artifacts, art and documents relating to the early history of the region, OSU and its predecessor, Oregon Agricultural College. This unique collection is the third largest and among the most diverse in the state.

BCHS has embarked on a bold plan for a more-accessible new facility in Corvallis as the Philomath museum lacks the space to present extensive interpretive exhibitions, and the collection is stored away from public view. 

 The museum’s board secured a highly desirable property at 2nd Street and Adams Avenue in downtown Corvallis. They retained noted Portland architect Brad Cloepfil of Allied Works Architecture who has designed a striking and light-filled new building for the site. BCHS plans to open the museum in Corvallis in 2018.

I started a search for a new SUV and saw that Honda had a
new smaller SUV‐the new 2016 HR‐V. I did an online search
and contacted University Honda. Lilly Higgins, the online
specialist, contacted me and invited me to come over and
see one of the HR‐V they had on the lot. It was the best
experience ever! I told Lilly want I was thinking and that i
wasn't in a hurry to buy a new car and wanted to complete
my research. She was the right salesperson for me. She understood what I wanted and they
stepped aside to let me do what I needed to do. About a month later, I came back with more
direction and ready to get serious. No pressure ever, she was patient and understanding
and answered all my questions. I was ready to buy and put a down to have them search for
the HR‐V I wanted and they found it. The whole experience was the best ever. University
Honda is a family owned business where they know their customers by first name and treat
you like you matter. I highly recommend anyone looking for a car and want a Honda, go to
University Honda and ask for Lilly. If Lilly isn't there, any of their salespersons will help
you. They are great!

Lilly was extremely helpful when we bought our daughter's car at University Honda in Corvallis. She met us, heard what we were looking for and then zeroed in on exactly the correct vehicle, which we test drove and in the end, purchased. The paperwork was quick and smooth and painless. Nice place to buy a car in Corvallis. Thank you Lilly!
Sincerely, Jules

Loved going into University Honda today. The staff is always so friendly and helpful, in addition to being able to answer almost any question I have. Pricing is fair and to the point. I’ve had numerous friends buy from University Honda, and I even spent time negotiating during one of their purchases and all have always been impressed.

I’ve been a University Honda Customer for over 25 years. I have purchased 2 Accords, 2 Civics, and currently own 2 CRV’s and I have always serviced every vehicle with University Honda. I retired from Oregon State University and several years back my wife and I moved to Baja, Mexico. Every year I take an annual visit to Corvallis and I still have my vehicles serviced at University Honda. I pass a lot of other Honda Dealerships along the way but these guys are the best and definitely worth it. I would recommend their service to anyone and it’s an honor to remain friends with the staff at this dealership.

I leased my 2011 Honda Civic from University Honda, and I have had such outstanding service the entire three years it was an easy decision to renew my lease with them. When I first called to set up an appointment, Sales Specialist Nery Hernandez really put me at ease with the whole process and we set up a time to lease another Honda Civic. When I went in Nery really made me feel comfortable and thoroughly answered all of my questions. I really appreciated the fact that he provided a lot of detail about each car I was considering and really allowed me to go at my own pace to make sure I made a decision that was best for me. He really was exceptional with guiding me through the process, and explaining everything, I really felt he truly had my best interest in mind throughout the process, I am thrilled with my new Honda Civic and I highly recommend Nery and University Honda!

The service department at University Honda provides a truly exemplary level of customer care. The staff are always friendly and always treat me with respect; they are willing to patiently answer any questions I may have. They go out of their way to help me resolve my car difficulties–far beyond what their jobs require (I’m thinking particularly of their assistance when my car battery died last week–they helped me get to the dealership and checked the battery for me all at no charge). I have never once gotten the sense–as I have from other mechanics and dealerships in the past–that I am being taken advantage of or being told that my car needs work it does not need. They embody a rare level of integrity that is crucial to have in this kind of business.
