Jake Jackson Museum
The J.J. Jackson Memorial Museum came about when Ray Jackson, brother of Jake (J.J.) left his collection of antique firearms in care of his brother while serving in World War I. These formed the nucleus of the present large museum collection.
The museum was first housed in the courthouse basement, but soon outgrew the space. In 1968, the present museum building was dedicated. The exhibits range from those of the earliest inhabitants of the area through the gold mining era and on to the present day.
