  • The Colton Area Museum is dedicated to preserving and sharing the city’s history through a variety of exhibits and interactive events that take place throughout the year. Some of the exhibits you’ll be able to explore include the Earp Family History, Memorabilia of Pioneer Colton Families, Hometown Heroes, early industries, and Women’s Clothes of the 19th and 20th centuries. There are also tributes to the fire and police departments.
  • It is FREE! Four stars just for that. It is a fun way to kill a few hours with the family. I like looking at the old pictures and imagining what life was like a hundred years ago. The docent was friendly and knowledgeable.
