Preserving the unique history of Tehama County, the museum is housed in a building with its own extensive story. Built in 1859, it was a school for 21 years, a Masonic Hall for 116, and is now home to an array of exhibits highlighting the county’s colorful past. Everything from mastodon tusks to period clothing, furnishings and photographs is on display. Models of campsites where pioneers and settlers stayed as they made their way across the Great Plains and Rocky Mountains bring history to life and trigger the imagination. 2016 brings the 35th year of the Tehama County Museum’s Annual Jubilee. Music, a Civil War re-enactor’s camp and loom weaving demonstrations are just some of fun to be had at the jubilee. The museum is open year-round, Saturday and Sundays from 1 to 4 p.m. Tours of the building can also be arranged by calling the museum.
