Anderson Valley Museum

Anderson Valley Museum
Anderson Valley


Intriguing artifacts from the area’s rich history await you at the Anderson Valley Historical Society’s museum. Located in a “little red schoolhouse” that was built in 1891, it is directly adjacent to Hwy 128 between Elk and Ukiah. Although the building is no longer used as a schoolhouse, as a museum it still teaches a great deal about the rich history of the Anderson Valley and Mendocino County. The museum showcases what life was like for those hardy pioneers who chose to settle here. Exhibits include a blacksmithing display, Pomo Indian baskets and basketmaking tools, historic timber equipment and fascinating photographs. Learn about “Boontling,” the whimsical local language once spoken widely throughout the valley. Bring your own lunch and enjoy an outdoor meal in the picnic area, sheltered in the shade of a redwood grove. The museum is open Saturdays and Sundays, 1 to 4pm, from February through November. WHERE: 12340 Hwy 128, Boonville, in the Con Creek “Little Red Schoolhouse.”
