Chico through Time

My two Bidwell books are now available at the Chico Museum.If you want to pick up a copy, you can get both books at Bidwell Mansion, Made in Chico, The Bookstore, Patrick Ranch, Chico Museum, The Rusty Wagon (Orland), or My Girlfriend’s Closet (Paradise.)

I’ll be signing books at My Girlfriend’s Closet next Saturday, March 12, from 1 to 4 p.m.


It’s a great time to visit the Chico Museum. They have just opened the exhibit Chico through Time. The exhibit has something for every interest, with mini-exhibits on the Bidwells, the Mechoopda Indians, agriculture, the Morehead family, Robin Hood (with a home movie behind-the-scenes version of the filming), Enloe Hospital, Clifford’s Jewelers, the police and fire departments, and Chico schools. Something for everyone!

Best of all, the Chinese temple has been restored and returned to the museum. It is worth it just to go and see the altar that once stood in the Joss House at 8th and Cherry.
