Del Norte County Historical Society Museum

Del Norte County Historical Society Museum

The Main Museum has a wealth of interesting displays. One room is devoted to artifacts of the local Tolowa and Yurok Native Americans. It includes one of the finest Native American basket collections in Northern California. Musical instruments, old radio, phonographic and photographic equipment, excellent needlework, early logging and mining tools and equipment, and many fashions and furniture from yesteryear are just some of the objects and subjects represented and on display in the Main Museum.

The Bolen Annex houses the magnificent First Order Fresnel Lens from the Saint George Reef Lighthouse. Photo carousels throughout the museum as well as on the walls of various rooms chronicle the historical visual representations of the people and events of Del Norte County. (from website)
