Butte County Pioneer Museum

The Butte County Pioneer Museum was built in 1932 by the Native Sons & Daughters of the Golden West as a replica of a 49er cabin. The museum has been enlarged to hold 6,000 square feet of historic treasures. A large Native American arrowhead and basket collection, a needle made from a gold nugget, pioneer furniture and clothing (including an extensive hat and fan collection) a doll from the Donner Party, and an invitation to an 1884 hanging are among the museum's rare and valuable holdings.
