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 Jonesville soon became a retreat for Chico settlers in the hot summer months.
Chico History Museum and the Jonesville Cabin Owners have collaborated to take you on a journey through time at their beautiful, historic, newly preserved Jonesville Hotel located in Jonesville, California. Join us for a family-friendly country picnic at Jonesville to commemorate the history of Jonesville Hotel, and, recently, its role during the devastating Dixie Fire.
