The Foresthill Divide Museum is located in Memorial Park, Foresthill, Ca. (see Maps). Foresthill is situated on a

peninsula of land lying between the North and Middle Forks of the American River.  The land mass between the rivers

is known as the Foresthill Divide or Divide for short.  Take a tour ‘Foresthill Road -Scenic and Historical Guide’.

The museum offers many displays that give visitors a good idea of life on the Divide in the late 19th and early 20th

centuries. Exhibits include Gold Rush artifacts, a logging exhibit which includes a scale model of the lumber mill,

educational displays on Native Americans, recreation and transportation as well as rotating exhibits and a computer

"slide show". The museum is open from the middle of May through the middle of October on Saturdays, Sundays, and

major holidays from noon to 4 PM.

The museum is also open during most major community events at Memorial Park. Special tours can be arranged.
