The general public may visit the museum and see a number of displays depicting Lincoln’s history; look at photographs of landmarks gone by; read books on California history; review old City of Lincoln record books and inquire about various frontier families. Guests may see a bit of local history and hopefully come away with more knowledge of Lincoln and the pioneers who made the town.
