Last year was the inaugural year for The Heritage Trail event. It took place on August 9th and 10th and included 18 museums in Placer County. Our goal was to create an event that focused on the history of the county and encouraged participants to visit multiple museums in two days. The response to the event exceeded our expectations so we are planning the 2nd annual Heritage Trail on August 8 & 9, 2009.
Once again 18 participating museums from Roseville to Tahoe are committed to showcasing history in a fun, entertaining way. All the museums will be open from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm on both days and admittance is FREE. The tour promises to be a family-friendly event with many hands-on activities for all ages. It is a chance to take a trip back in time and get a better understanding of Placer County’s rich, colorful history. Visitors will learn more about the pivotal role our county played in important events such as the California Gold Rush, construction of the First Transcontinental Railroad and the development of the recreation industry in the Sierra Nevada.
