    Dave Nopel will give a program titled “The Humboldt Wagon Road-Yesterday and Today”.  In preparation for our Chico History Museum visit to the Jonesville Hotel the following Saturday, August 21, Dave will use old historic photos combined with contemporary color photos to give a summary of the wagon road which began in downtown Chico and headed east into Nevada and Idaho.  He will follow the evolution of the original wagon road as it transitioned into today’s California State Highway 32.  Come see the program on our new 85” monitor screen.


    This is part 1 of the two-event series being presented by Chico History Museum in collaboration with the Jonesville Cabin Owners to take you on a journey through time. One week later, we will present Part 2: "Stagestop Luncheon at Jonesville Hotel", hosted by Jonesville Cabin Owners at their beautiful, historic, newly restored Jonesville Hotel located in Jonesville, California.

    Single Day and Series Tickets are available. DO NOT PURCHASE another ticket if you have purchased a series ticket through "Stagecoach Luncheon at Jonesville Hotel" registration. See events page for more details.

    The Jonesville Hotel is the only stagecoach stop that still exists on the old Humboldt Road. The road was commissioned by General John Bidwell in 1863 as a toll road to Susanville, and became a retreat for Chico settlers in the hot summer months.

    Chico History Museum and the Jonesville Cabin Owners collaborated to take you on a journey through time. The first event, Humboldt Wagon Road, Yesterday and Today, includes a lecture, to be presented by Dave Nopel on August 14th at the Chico History Museum. One week later, on August 21st, we will present "Stagestop Luncheon at Jonesville Hotel", hosted by the Jonesville Cabin Owners, at their beautiful, historic, newly preserved Jonesville Hotel located in Jonesville, California.

Picnic Lunch will be prepared by the Jonesville Cabin Owners, vegetarian option is available. Series ticket includes entry to both events. DO NOT PURCHASE another ticket if you have purchased a series ticket through "Humboldt Wagon Road, Yesterday and Today Lecture" registration.
