Visit the Fort Francisco Museum. Originally a trading post constructed in 1862, the site now preserves the adobe fort and a collection of buildings including an 1890’s saloon, an 1876 log school house, an 1855 blacksmith shop, and more. Explore exhibits on Hispanic and Native American culture, ranching and coal mining, as well as a vast array of artifacts, photos, arrowheads, and a letter by Abraham Lincoln. Check the schedule for special events featuring demonstrations in adobe brick-making, wool-spinning, blacksmithing, and bread-baking. There is a small entrance fee, free for children under 12.
