Coarsegold Tepee

You can not miss the Coarsegold Historic Village, if you watch for the Tepee. This is the type of home that the Plains Indians used, not the type that our local Coarsegold Chukchansi's lived in.. The Coarsegold Historical Museum on Hy 41, near the Casino has a sample of the Nobe or the Cedar Bark homes of our local tribes. Cedar bark was used at the higher elevations and Willow trees and grasses were used at the lower elevations where it did not snow.
