Search Chester California

The Chester-Lake Almanor Museum features a photographic history of the Lake Almanor Basin, including dairy farming, logging, and tourism displays. Also included are Maidu Indian basketry and artifacts.

A compact, century-old steam locomotive known as the "Dinky" is also on display on the Collins Pine Co. lawn along Main Street. The "Dinky" was recently discovered at the bottom of nearby Butt Valley Reservoir during repairs to the dam. It is believed to have been used to help build the dam about 1913.

Please call for museum times and admission prices.
