Massive wooden columns , formal pediment and a uniquely original series of cut decorations spelling the name "Gibson" reflect some of the character of the ten room house that is now the Yolo County Historical Museum. This 1850's-70's Classical Revival home, extensively remodeled before the turn of the century, was built by William Byas Gibson and occupied by his family until 1963. It now houses rooms of furnishings depicting different styles and eras. Acquired by the County of Yolo and opened to the public on a regular basis, the house and grounds are here for your pleasure.
The Museum houses collections of furnishings and artifacts depicting the various eras from the 1850s to the 1930s. In addition to being a house museum there are changing exhibits on various subjects related to the history of Yolo County. The outbuildings contain displays of agriculture and everyday life of the same period. Feel free to visit us anytime during public hours.
The grounds are also available for events. http://www.gibsonhouse.org/upcoming-events/
