Enjoy the beautiful fall weather, museum displays, Model T rides and an arts and craft show. A quilt show will be held in the 1869 log cabin. Make sure you visit the newly constructed primitive log cabin and the log granary. Take a walk through the 17 acre site and enjoy the peace and solitude of the area. Three log cabins and a log granary are on the site.

There are displays in the museum and crafts for kids.

You can even experience caramel apple cotton candy!
There will be musicians all through the day along with storytellers and other entertainment. Enjoy an old-fashioned day in an old-fashioned village. Bring your lawn chair and spend the day listening to great musical groups! Many other events for children and their parents! This event is just one of the ways the museum has celebrated its 29th anniversary this summer.
The museum is located in the two room brick school house in the hamlet of Almelund. The Friends of the Amador Heritage Center have interpreted local history for two decades in this museum.
Arts and craft spaces are available at reasonable rates. Call Diane at 583-2295 to reserve your spot today. Donations of home made apple pies and desserts are greatly appreciated. All proceeds go toward reconstructing log buildings on the site. Make sure you come and see what your donations from years past have created!
