Folsom Pioneer Village

Historic Folsom Pioneer Village and historic railroad turntable and caboose
Taste the life of the pioneers! Costumed docents lead students through these outdoor living-history sites that offer opportunities to feel what the life of the pioneers was really like. Students can climb aboard a caboose, pan for gold, watch a blacksmith, tour a settler’s cabin and much more.

Add the Historic Folsom Powerhouse to your tour. Just ask and we'll help make the arrangements.

Cost and Scheduling
Each tour costs $6.00.

Call today to arrange for a docent-lead tour.  Schedule a one to three hour program tailored to meet your needs.  We are able to accommodate up to 45 people (adults and students) for each session.
