Chico History Museum invites you to a special event. Join us in "Celebrating Chico's Chapmans" at the historic Little Chapman Mansion.

The event ticket includes Buffet Brunch and Garden Tours. Mimosas, baked goods, and other fresh fares will be served. Garden tours will be offered through the two-acre setting of this early 1800s National Trust-designated building located in Chico’s first suburb. Its setting features trees over 100 years old, fragrant roses, colorful azaleas, beautiful camellias, and indigenous redbud trees. Discover the secluded private park with old oak trees shading walking paths that meander throughout and beneath the park’s oaks, you will find smaller trees and shrubs such as Japanese maples, dogwoods, and peonies. It is truly a gardener's paradise.

In addition, you can purchase a separate ticket for a Guided Tour of the Mansion. We encourage that you purchase your tour tickets in advance due to limited availability. Only main event attendees will have access to the Mansion Tour.

Local historians will talk about the Little Chico Mansion and its history which is also featured in our host, Dr. Michelle Shover, upcoming book coming out in August.

Tickets cost is $60 per person for the Buffet Brunch and Garden Tour. An Add-on ticket for a Guided Tour of the Mansion is $10 per person.
