10:00 AM - 12:00 PM Old Timers Museum Walking Tours Are Every Saturday at 10am.
Murphys, CA...Each Saturday morning the Old Timers Museum in Murphys offers a historical walking tour of Murphys. No reservation necessary. Meet at the Museum, 470 Main St, Murphys, across from the Hotel 10 am. Walk is 1-1/12 hours.


A stroll down tree-lined Main Street transports visitors back to the mid-1800s with buildings bearing thick stone walls, iron shutters and pastoral gardens with white picket fences. Once you experience the charm and hospitality of Murphys, the historic “Queen of the Sierra”, you’ll want to come back again and again!

Rich in Gold Rush History, Murphys today is a vibrant, thriving community of over 2,000 residents. Many of the surrounding hillsides are rich with the fine wine grapes grown in our area. Murphys offers wineries, art galleries, live theater, eclectic shops, fine restaurants, charming hotels and B&B’s as well as a multitude of outstanding outdoor recreational opportunities.

Murphys’ colorful past came alive in 1848 when John and Daniel Murphy established a trading post and gold mining operation in the area that is now their namesake. True entrepreneurs with the luck of the Irish, they were a part of the very first immigrant party – the Stephens-Townsend-Murphy families – to successfully bring wagons over the Sierra in 1844, paving the way for westward migration. John and Daniel’s cries of “Gold!” were among the first heard in California. It is reported that the brothers took two million dollars in gold ore from the Murphys Diggins in one year’s time, making them millionaires before the age of 25. The sizzling Gold Rush camp of Murphys also played host to President Grant, Mark Twain and Black Bart. And in some circles, to an even more famous chap – a young, inquisitive lad who literally changed the scientific world, Dr. Albert Michelson.

Our friendly residents invite you to revisit the past while exploring the “new” upscale Murphys. Guided walking tours of the town’s many historic buildings including the home of Albert Michelson, the first American Nobel Prize winner, are conducted every Saturday at 10:00 a.m., starting in front of the Old Timers Museum on Main Street.
11:00 AM - 12:00 PM Town Tours of Columbia State Historic Park Every Weekend!

Meet at the office on Main Street & State St Columbia, CA 95310

01:00 PM Spend the Summer at Big Trees State Park. Guided Hikes Every Weekend
Arnold, CA...Calaveras became a State Park in 1931 to preserve the North Grove of giant sequoias. This grove includes the "Discovery Tree", also known as the "Big Stump", the first Sierra redwood noted by Augustus T. Dowd in 1852. This area has been a major tourist attraction ever since, and is considered the longest continuously operated tourist facility in California.
Over the years, other parcels of mixed conifer forests have been added to the park. This amazing park has a huge variety of habitats and recreational opportunities to explore. Click Below for Latest Activity Guide

About Habitat for Humanity Calaveras

Habitat for Humanity Calaveras seeks to bring people together to build affordable homes for families in need. In addition to building new homes we also offer a home repair program that provides people with existing homes the opportunity to upgrade or repair their homes to make them stronger and safer. We offer a “hand up” not a “hand out” to encourage hope by strengthening the community in which we live.

A world where everyone has a decent place to live. Where neighborhoods are revitalized into vibrant, safe and inviting places for current and future residents. This happens through the hard work of engaged citizens, partnerships with civic and business groups to generate a renewed community spirit.

OUR MISSION
To build and repair affordable homes for families in need.

OUR HISTORY
Habitat for Humanity was established in 1976 founded on Christian principles. Habitat for Humanity Calaveras has been serving Calaveras County since 1996. Since then we have built 16 houses and repaired hundreds of homes – all in Calaveras County.

Today the organization has a six member staff, a ReStore home improvement thrift store and we are actively building and repairing homes throughout Calaveras County. We are governed by a Board of Directors. There are selection and support committees made up of local residents who select Habitat homebuyers and walk them through the home buying process. We welcome and use volunteers from the community to implement our programs.

We are part of a global, nonprofit housing organization. Habitat for Humanity Calaveras is dedicated to eliminating substandard housing through constructing affordable homes; by advocating for fair and just housing policies; and by providing training and access to resources to help families become self-reliant and successful homeowners.
