Built originally as mining exhibit hall on the 20th Agricultural District Fairgrounds, this building was constructed in the 1940s by the W.P.A. Crew from nearby Camp Flint. Placer County Historical Society secured use of a portion of the building for a museum which opened in January 24, 1948 and then expanded in 1951. Placer County took over museum operations in 1948, hiring May Perry as curator. The name was later changed to The Gold Country Museum.
