Our museum serves as an anchor for early West Sonoma County history. It is an example of the late 19th century industrial revolution, life-styles & work ethics. We invite teachers and students of all ages to come “Step back into History” with us on our special “student’s-only history days.”
Beginning in 1914, Sturgeon's Mill provided needed lumber for western Sonoma County until it closed in 1964. Then, after 30 years of laying dormant, a faithful group of history enthusiasts began work to bring it back to life. Their goal was to create a working museum revealing the daily operations of an early 20th century steam powered sawmill.
