Coarsegold Historic Museum

Ralph and I enjoy volunteering at the Coarsegold Historic Museum which is on Highway 41, below the Chukchansi Casino.
It is completely funded by donations from the public. The Historical Society was organized in 1980 at the home of Marjorie Jackson and after a few location changes, they purchased the Willow Glen Property with the barn and old Adobe. Items have been donated and stories collected regarding the history of this area. Much of the history of this area is tied in with the gold panning, mining and ranching. That is the reason for the name Coarsegold. There is gold in them thar hills.. or at least they say so..
