A new display at the Lassen Historical Society’s Museum on Weatherlow street shows off the ‘wild west’ side of Lassen County with photos, tools, cowboy accessories and tack.
Among the unique exhibits are US cavalry saddle bags from WWI, an intricately etched silver bridle, a hand made horse-hair rope, woolie chaps, barbed wire samples, branding irons, spurs, a rope-making tool and more.
The saddle in the display was owned by Tom Johnston and has ‘bucking rolls.’
Stop by and see lots of Lassen County history at the museum next to Roop’s Fort near Memorial Park. The museum is open from 10:00 to 4:00p.m. Tuesday through Friday and from 11:00 to 3:00p.m. on Saturday.
