  • Great place to get a lot of history. Very knowledgable staff and helpful with the local community.
  • Tehachapi, California. Small, local museum that perserves it's old community. The museum is small and you won't spend too much time in there unless you watch the movie. The exhibits are limited due to size, and a good chunk is devoted to Natives. Access/Roads: A Paved. Parking: C Limited to street parking. Small towns don't have an issue unless there is a themed festival occuring then parking sucks. Distance: B Appx 130 miles north of DTLA. Appx 50 miles east of bakersfield Costs: A Free Nearby Attractions: Tehachapi Area sites (listed below) is appx one hour north or 60 miles: Tehachapi Mountain Park/Recreation Park Tehachapi Depot RR Museum Tehachapi Railroad Loop Errea House Museum Tomo Kahni State Historic Park Conclusion: B Great place to scope if your in the area and into local history. Safe travelings my friends. Always stay curious. IG @cigarcpa
