Museums & Art Galleries







Trinity County is full of history, art and fascinating people. Take time out to explore some of our history and culture that helped shaped Northern California. Constructed in 1874 by Chinese gold miners, the Joss House is the oldest Taoist temple in California. The Jake Jackson museum features prime relics of gold rush-era California, including the only functional steam-powered stamp mill on the West Coast. The Highland Art Center holds twelve monthly art shows each year, including two juried shows featuring the fine works of our mountain artist community.
