The Heritage Trail Event – August 10th and 11th

This year’s 6th Annual Heritage Trail event is the weekend of August 10th and 11th.  19 museums in Placer County, from Roseville to North Lake Tahoe, will open their doors free of charge  for a weekend of fun activities and historical enlightenment for the whole family!
The museums are open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. both days and each museum is unique in its own way.  Six of the museums are in South Placer County – Lincoln Area Archives Museum, Maidu Museum & Historic Site (Roseville), Roseville Historical Society Carnegie Museum, Rocklin History Museum, Griffith Quarry Museum (Penryn) and the Roseville Telephone Museum.  Six are in Auburn and close enough to each other that visitors can park and walk to all six – The Benton Welty School Room, Bernhard Museum Complex, Gold Country Museum, Placer County Museum and Joss House Museum.  The remaining seven are in mountain communities – Forest Hill Divide Museum (Foresthill), Colfax Area Heritage Museum, Golden Drift Museum (Dutch Flat), Donner Summit Historical Society Museum (Soda Springs), Western SkiSport Museum (Boreal), Gatekeeper’s Museum (Tahoe City) and Watson Cabin (Tahoe City).
You can drive yourself or, for $10 per day, relax and reserve a spot on a bus touring the museums.  The bus tours depart and return to the upper parking lot of the Gold Country Fairgrounds in Auburn each day.  Space is limited so you need to reserve your seat in advance by calling 530/889-6500.
For more information about the tour and the participating museums, visit The Heritage Trail website.
