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
The Central Sierra Historical Society’s purpose is to create and operate an historical society and museum for the purpose of preservation and display of the history, antiques, artifacts and historical memorabilia of the Central Sierra mountain area.
