Jake Jackson Museum And History Center

Jake Jackson Museum And History Center

The museum houses a collection of rare firearms that were the core of the first artifacts that have grown into the Jake Jackson Museum. The Paymaster Mine Two Stamp Mill replica houses the only working steam stamp mill on the west coast. Visitors can see a cabin lived in by one of many ditch tenders for the La Grange mine. The Blacksmith Shop provides tools and instruction for blacksmiths of every degree of expertise. 

We hope you enjoy our work.
