Learn fun and interesting facts about water in Mt. Shasta Sisson Museum’s newest exhibit, “Water is Life - Present Day.” Attendees will see beautiful photos with stories about water in our landscape and have many opportunities to interact with various parts of our newest exhibit on water. This is the second year of a 3-year endeavor, telling the stories about water in the Mount Shasta area. Last year’s exhibit focused on the history of water through early 1900s. This second year, 2022, covers stories from 1900 to the present day. In the third year, we will have displays and stories about what the future might bring to water in our area. Go to www.mtshastamuseum.com/covid-policies/ to prepare for your visit.

Step behind the counter of the oldest financial institution in the Pacific Northwest when Historic Jacksonville, Inc. opens the 1863 Beekman Bank Museum for summer weekend tours. The Bank, located at 110 W. California Street in Jacksonville, saw over $40 million in gold cross its counters during Jacksonville’s heyday in the late 1800s—the equivalent of over $1 billion today. Interact with costumed docents sharing stories of late 19th Century banking practices, gold shipping, and handshake deals; step behind the counter and peer in drawers containing old checks, stage schedules, and paperwork; enter the vault that stored all those millions in gold! “Banking hours” are 11am to 3 pm, every Saturday and Sunday from May 28 through September 4. Admission is FREE but donations are encouraged with all monies going towards the preservation and maintenance of this historic legacy!
