Amador County Museum, Jackson, Amador County

This 15-room classic Greek Revival dwelling, constructed in 1854 as a home of Armstead C. Brown, one of Jackson's earliest settlers. The museum features a fascinating array of artifacts and items from the county's early days.

Collections include a Gold History Exhibit, fashions of the past, a Victorian bedroom and parlor, a Native American collection, a Chinese American collection, and much more. The museum at 225 Church Street overlooks historic downtown Jackson.

Amador County purchased the Brown house in 1950 from the heirs of the last Brown that lived there. For 90 years, the Brown family called the county museum home.

The museum's artifact collection includes antiquities, archaeology, basketry, costumes, decorative arts, ethnic & tribal art, folk art, furniture, historic site, history, mineralogy, painting, prints/drawing, textiles, and works on paper
