The museum notes the town was founded in 1828, however we now the indigenous people have called it home for thousands of years. In 1924 the town established a post office and a railway station. The town is primarily driven by forestry, along with tourism and agriculture. In the late 1800's gold was found in the region and was mined using the placer method.
