Native son Martin Huberty returns to Calaveras County to take over the Calaveras Visitors Bureau and becomes the new Angels Camp Museum Director. One of the Pandemic’s few positive unintended consequences was the co-location of the CVB with the Angels Camp Museum grounds from its original old town Angels Camp location. One of the first places people go when visiting the area is the Visitor’s Bureau and with the museum right there -it makes it the perfect first stop to kick off a tour of the Gold Country and the Sierra foothills.
The Angels Camp Museum Foundation in collaboration with the staff and historians at the Angels Camp Museum is announcing the launch of a self-guided audio tour bringing the history of the California Gold Rush to life as visitors explore the museum’s three-acre campus. The official launch is timed to coincide with the museum’s April 11 Living History Day where the Carpentry, Printing and Weaving artisan exhibits will all be staffed by docents in period costume and demonstrating their crafts.
