Columbia, California, William Cavalier Museum

William Cavalier Museum

The William Cavalier Museum is located in downtown Columbia, California, the site of the largest preserved gold rush era town by the California State Park system.

The museum hosts an exhibit about the oldest two story schoolhouse in the state of California which was built in March 1861, a mere month before Confederates fired their cannons on Fort Sumter in South Carolina.
