It’s Membership Time!
As we embark on a new year, the Sierra County Historical Society Board of Directors would like to thank you for your continued support. Memberships and donations allow us to continue the work of preserving our precious local history.
2017 was a busy year for us. Work on the Kentucky Museum Project is nearing completion and upgrading fixtures and exhibits is ongoing. We hope to expand the museum schedule to be open seven days a week beginning this spring. Our Music at the Mine producer, Chris Stockdale, has a great line-up of summer concerts for you again this year. Our goal is to acquire a golf cart to shuttle folks up the hill to the amphitheater. Please visit or volunteer at the Kentucky Mine any time this summer; we’d love to see you there!
We are happy to report we were able to have the Historic Sierraville School placed on both the state and national registers of historic places. We also reprinted two of our popular books about the historic barns and homes of the Sierra Valley. Both books are available for purchase in the museum.
In 2018 we will lend a hand to the Truckee Donner Land Trust in their quest to restore the Webber Lake Hotel. Built in the 1860’s on the shore of Webber Lake, the hotel was a stage stop along the historic Henness Pass Road for visitors and freight haulers traveling from the California Gold Country to the Silver Mines of Virginia City, Nevada.
Until our 2018 spring opening please follow us on our website. It’s a good time to be a Sierra County Historical Society member, please renew or join us now.
