Tuolumne County Museum And History Center

The front gallery is full of photographs and artifacts depicting the county's geographical regions. The six regions are represented as follows: Sonora, Crossroads of Tuolumne County; North to Columbia; Jamestown and the Way West; South of the River; Out to Tuolumne and Up in the Hills. Other displays contain information on the overland treks across the Sierra Nevada between 1841 and 1860, Mark Twain and pioneer firearms. There's even a display on Soapbox Derbys dating back just prior to World War II. (from website)
