Willow Glen was first inhabited by the Chukchansi Indians. The grinding holes and other artifacts indicate that they have lived in this area since prehistoric times. In 1870 a stage road was built and in 1897 John McGinity homesteaded at Willow Glen. An adobe way station was built, along with a blacksmith shop and a saloon to serve the travelers. In the 1930's highway 41 was completed and the saloon was moved down to the new road and a gas station was added. After many owners, the property was purchased by Hazel A. Kennedy. She built the barn using lumber that came down the flume from Sugar Pine. In 1991 the property was purchased by the Coarsegold Historical Society and the museum was established that presently includes the adobe, the Kennedy barn, and the Picayune School. The adobe and Picayune School are listed on the California Register of Historical Resources.
