Today’s peek into the archives shows the arrival of the Willamette Meteorite to the Museum in 1906. 

Weighing 15.5 tons, this iron meteorite is the largest ever found in the United States and the sixth-largest in the world. The smooth surface melted during its blazing entry into the atmosphere, while the pits formed on the Earth’s surface.

The Willamette Meteorite was originally located within the Upper Willamette Valley of Oregon. It was revered as a spiritual being that has healed and empowered the people of the valley by the Clackamas Indians who occupied the region. 

Learn more about the formation of the Willamette Meteorite, and about its cultural significance

AMNH/2A9703 and AMNH/31498 from the Museum’s Online Digital Special Collections.
