Search Porterville California

The Porterville Historical Museum was founded in 1965 and is housed in the old Southern Pacific depot, constructed in 1913. Prior to the arrival of early explorers, the Yokuts Indians occupied the San Joaquin Valley. The museum contains examples of their handiwork.

Representing the first pioneers are saddles, chaps, and other western paraphernalia. In the yard are examples of vehicles that serve to remind the visitor of the agricultural roots upon which Porterville's economy has been based.

The Porterville Museum is open Thursday through Saturday, 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. For more information, call (559) 784-2053.
