Come Visit Susanville’s Past at the Lassen Historical Museum

Wednesday, August 21st, 2019

There’s a special place in Susanville where the past is stored for safe keeping. The Lassen Historical Museum sits next to historic Roop’s Fort on Weatherlow Street and not only exhibits our county’s interesting relics, but tells the stories too.

Just why is the log cabin that sets above memorial Park called Roop’s Fort? Who was Peter Lassen? And how did Susanville get its name? Find out the answers to these questions and a whole lot more.

The museum is open five days a week, all year long, and special tours are always available. Just call the museum at 257-3292 for information.

This is also the best time of year to volunteer at the museum and they are always looking for people to add to their pool of helpers. It’s a great way to meet people from all over the world and reconnect with old friends.

Stop by during museum hours to find out about the available volunteer opportunities.

Visit the website susanvillehistory.com to find out more.

    That’s the Hay Bailer (on the right) that is the twin to the one that my dad and the inmates went to Shasta City and got and rebuilt. I think I have pictures some place of them building it at the pole yard unless they were with the stuff my brother Brice and I donated to the Cal Fire Museum. It was out at the prison for years.
