The vision of transforming the North Star House into a cultural event center and museum open to the community is now a reality. The North Star Historic Conservancy is pleased to announce that the North Star House is now open to the public every Tuesday and Thursday from 10am – 1 pm, and every Saturday, May through September, 9am until noon.
Come view this iconic landmark with your friends, family, or business associates.
During the “open house” hours, history docents will be on hand to give informal tours and answer questions about the North Star House, its nationally known architect, Julia Morgan, and its first inhabitants, mining engineer, Arthur DeWint Foote and author and artist, Mary Hallock Foote.
On Tuesdays and Thursdays the construction crew will also be available to explain the renovation plans and process.
The North Star House served as the social headquarters of the North Star Mine, and was where the public and investors were invited to meet and greet. This special example of California Craftsman Style architecture is on the National and the California State Historic Buildings Registers.
Visitors are welcome to sign the Guest Book and to learn about becoming a Volunteer. Students of all ages are welcome!
