Dunsmuir Museum

The Dunsmuir Railroad Depot Historical Society has re-opened the Dunsmuir Museum, located at the Dunsmuir Depot on Sacramento Avenue. The Depot Society recovered the original Dunsmuir Museum sign and restored it at the entrance.


Depot Society Members and Dunsmuir High School Seniors have prepared four rooms showing Dunsmuir’s bright railroad history.


The Dunsmuir Museum features display panels of the first settlers in the area, Native American Indians, the Alexander Dunsmuir story, Dunsmuir town/site names and Dunsmuir railroad facilities.

For our angler fans, we have a fly fishing exhibit to commemorate Dunsmuir’s abundant sport fishing.


The Elinore Van Fossen Harrison Native American Basket Collection, our newest exhibit, and an arrowhead collection are also on display.


The public is encourage to donate or loan Dunsmuir-related items to further preserve the history of the town.  Please call Phyllis Skalko at (530) 235-0839 for more information.
