General Overview

The museum was built in 1950 by the county in an attempt to preserve the history of the area for future generations. To help accomplish this, the Museum organized various thematic exhibits from prehistoric times to the turn of the century, published historical manuscripts and developed educational programming to help convey the life and times of early Siskiyou County residents. The Museum’s first professionally designed and interpreted longterm exhibit – Siskiyou County, a Time of Change – opened in early 1993. The exhibit includes expanded text and artifacts of our Native American culture here in Siskiyou County, the trapping era and military history.


The society’s goals are intertwined with the Siskiyou County Museum, since establishing a museum was a major accomplishment of the society in cooperation with the board of supervisors who allocated money for the construction of a museum building in 1949. Both the society and museum are dedicated to the purpose of collecting, preserving, and disseminating Siskiyou County history.
