Community Memorial Museum

The museum has a number of permanent exhibits on the Maidu Indians, early Sutter County settlers, agriculture, the Sutter Buttes, and school life. Smaller displays include transportation, women, Lola Montez, local photographs, the 1955 flood, the stereoscope, a Baldwin player piano and the old Meridian Bridge. Some special items of interest are the restored Yuba Ball Tractor, John Sutter's Gun, and Lola Montez's dressing table. The Exhibits combine artifacts, photographs and interpretive labels that provide a self-guided tour.

We hope you enjoy our work.
