Researching and Preserving the History of the Southern Yosemite Foothills


Consider a Class Trip to the


This historic site is full of artifacts that will bring your history lesson to life. We have four structures to explore:

  • The Kennedy Barn houses the majority of our artifacts
  • The Old Adobe was a way station dating back to at least 1898
  • Picayune School House was moved to the museum site in 1994
  • Blacksmith Shop was recently constructed using barn board from the Veater Ranch

Our hours vary from summer to winter, but we will open our doors to fit the needs of our guests. We can accommodate self-guided tours, docent led tours and activity centers.  Arrangements can be made for a black smith demonstration as well. Please feel free to contact our Museum Director, Linda Core, if you are interested in setting up a field trip. Email or call (559) 642-3802.

We hope you will consider bringing your class to this historic site!

    I am interested in bringing my class to the museum to enhance our learning of Native Americans in the USA and in California if approved or maybe having a docent come with some artifacts to share. I teach a 4th grade / 5th grade combination class at Oakhurst Elementary School and when I was student teaching at Coarsegold Elementary, this was an option that was offered. Please let me know what is available to us and what the cost would be and what days would be best in the next month. I appreciate your time and attention. Thank you, Dawn Williams
