Heritage Trail 2010

The 3rd annual Heritage Trail will be held on August 7 & 8, 2010. Nineteen participating museums from Roseville to Tahoe are committed to showcasing history in a fun, entertaining way. All of the museums will be open from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm on both days with FREE admittance. 

The tour promises to be a family-friendly event with many hands-on activities for all ages. Visitors can bake biscuits in an 1890s wood stove, jump to the finish line in an old fashioned sack race, explore the wonders of a granite quarry, view the world from a 19th century stage coach, pan for illusive flakes of gold, and listen to Native American stories. Trail Guides will be available at every museum in July and on our website. 

For the most up to date information on the weekend activities visit our website and our Facebook page. 

The museums are listed from West to East, and are easy to reach from I-80.
