Dave Nopel will give a program titled “The Humboldt Wagon Road-Yesterday and Today”. 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 lecture was planned as part 1 of the two-event series being presented by Chico History Museum in collaboration with the Jonesville Cabin Owners Association to take you on a journey through time. Sadly, Part 2: "Stagestop Luncheon at Jonesville Hotel", has been cancelled due to the wildfire in the area. This lecture will proceed as scheduled. Hope to see you at the museum.
