A museum without walls
“Museums ought to be the center around which educational institutions should cluster, the storehouse whence they could draw the material examples and illustrations required on the lecture table and in the classroom.” – J. Patton 1886
Why We Do It
Our purpose is to operate an historical society and museum which will preserve and display stories, artifacts and memorabilia of the Central Sierra Nevada.
