About the Museum:
The Museum is operated by the Folsom Historical Society, located in historic downtown Folsom. It is the home to a wonderful collection of artifacts and treasures that chronicle the settlement and development of the Folsom area. You'll see fascinating and educational exhibits throughout the year along with special events highlighting the Gold Rush era and Folsom's history.
The goal of the Folsom Historical Society is to preserve our past. The Folsom History Museum archives exist to collect, preserve, and make available historical records and documents for public research. The Museum's collection illustrates various aspects of Folsom's rich history.
The Folsom Historical Society was founded in 1960 to preserve the history of Folsom and to reconstruct the Wells Fargo & Company assay office and bank (Palmer & Day Building) that now serves as the Folsom History Museum.
The History Museum focuses on exhibits about Folsom's native people, the discovery of gold and the formation of mining camps, ethnic groups who contributed to this area, the formation of the town, railroad, prison, powerhouse, and later efforts at gold mining.
