The focus of the Loyalton Milton Gottardi Museum is "preserving the history of the Sierra Valley." The display rooms highlight early 20th century home and business life, and there is a special emphasis on the railroads and logging/mill operations, including a model train layout depicting a logging camp, the Clover Valley Lumber Company, Main Street Loyalton, and a dairy ranch in the pre-WW II era.
Directions: 1 block north of Main Street (Highway 49) behind The Golden West Hotel. The museum is visible from Main Street.
Rocky Point Road, east of Portola, CA
The museum is an 1850s-era log cabin, which once served as a trading post and hotel of sorts, and was reportedly built by explorer and Mountain Man, Jim Beckwourth.Directions: From Highway 70, turn south on Rocky Point Road, 0.3 of a mile west of the Lester T. Davis CalTrans rest stop. The museum does not have a physical or postal address, nor does it have a phone. It exists just as Jim Beckwourth might have in 1856. But it is the only log cabin on the west side of Rocky Point Road, ~ 200 yards south of Highway 70. Look for a sign in front of the Cabin to indicate when the museum is open.
Open daily Saturday and Sunday 10 AM to 5 PM, weather permitting.
Call or check on line for specifics: directions, reservations, special features, including train rides, etc. Operated by the Feather River Rail Society, this 36-acre museum celebrates the Western Pacific Railroad and invites guests to experience railroading in a "hands-on" environment, just like taking a walk into your local rail yard.
