Lassen Historical Museum
This is a tiny museum with good displays about the local history of the area. A major industry in Susanville from 1921 - 1954 was the manufacture of wooden boxes used to package and ship fruit grown in southern California. A log building known as Roop’s Fort is located on the grounds. It was built in 1854 by Isaac Roop, an early settler, as a trading post for westbound migrants.
The museum is accessible. The fort can’t be entered but you can peek in the door.
The parking in front of the museum is too short for RVs but parking is available on the opposite side of the street.
