The newly expanded and renovated Tread of Pioneers Museum offers something for everyone. The heart of the museum is a 1908 Queen Anne-style Victorian home with turn-of-the-century furnishings. Engaging and interactive exhibits feature the local and regional history of Native Americans, skiing, agriculture, mining, pioneer settlement, town development, and more. Our Western Heritage Exhibit, home of an extensive firearms collection, traces our agricultural history and the story of an infamous outlaw, Harry Tracy. Special museum features include computer and video interactive exhibits, hands-on exhibits for kids, Kids Scavenger Hunt, oral history library, local history research center, unique museum gift shop, and an online historic photograph collection.
