Activities To Enjoy With the Butte County Historical Society

Meet the Local Authors

Saturday, May 10th at 12 pm to 3 pm

As part of the Feather Fiesta Days celebration, BCHS will be hosting Conversations With Local Authors at the Ehmann Home. We are inviting the local authors of the books that we stock in our gift shops to join us. We will have their books for sale, and they will be happy to sign them for you. Even if you aren't interested in purchasing a book, this is a great opportunity to come chat with these local researchers about their areas of interest. We already have at least ten authors confirmed. Their books include titles covering several Butte County towns, Oroville Dam, Oroville-Quincy Highway, the poet Pres Longley, John Bidwell, flumes and hiking trails, a logging mill, and other topics of local interest. Drop in anytime during the open house. Refreshments will be served.

Oregon City School BBQ

You know spring is here when we start to talk about the Annual BBQ in the beautiful setting at our historic school house in Oregon City. The details will be posted here shortly, but it will be lots of the same--relaxation, an excellent tri-tip and chicken meal, good conversations and lots of desserts to bid on and enjoy. If you are new to BCHS, you won't want to miss this experience. Mark your calendar!

Looking for that perfect gift for a history buff? Drop by our Museum and Museum Store. After a captivating walk through Butte County history at the Museum, take a few moments to fill your gift list with some of wonderful items in our newly reorganized and restocked Museum Store. Our volunteers have found many local products that will delight your family and friends. Also, be sure to look at selection of excellent books about Butte County's fascinating history. Here is just a sample of some of the current books available.

Among the many local products made in Butte County, there are new additions from Painted Sky, a company based in Gridley that makes soaps, lotions and heel & elbow cream all from goat's milk. Mooney Farms, based at the Chico Airport, has wonderful culinary products that feature sun-dried tomatoes, artichoke pasta sauce and pesto. This Butte County company also has wonderful olive oil and beautiful gift baskets! These are just the tip of the iceberg of local products, books on local history, archival storage boxes and folders now available.

Lee's Tamale Spice is back in the store! Find out more.

So think about us when you are ready for an interesting day at the museum or when you have a little shopping to do. We're looking forward to your visit.
