The County contracts with the Calaveras County Historical Society to oversee the day-to-day operation of the County Museum. The Calaveras County Museum Complex is made up of three historic buildings: The Old Courthouse and Jail - 1867, The Hall of Records - 1893, and The Odd Fellows Hall - 1856. Within these interconnected buildings, the history of Calaveras County is told through objects, portraits, and photographs. Here you will find educational displays that tell the County's pre-history and Tribal culture, the stories of the early-pioneers, and the history of the Gold Rush encompassing the influence of European, Chinese, Mexican and many other cultures and their stories and objects related to mining and other industries in the County.
