OPEN HOUSES – OPEN TO THE PUBLIC
We will post our schedule of Open Houses for 2021 here when we are able to safely and legally open the House.
History Docents will be at the house to provide informal tours or answer questions about the North Star House, Julia Morgan, Arthur D. and Mary Hallock Foote, and more.
New in Late 2021: A self-guided Landscape Tour.
In addition to being a brilliant mining engineer and superintendent of the North Star Mine, Arthur D. Foote was a horticulturalist. He designed an Edwardian landscape surrounding the House. You can see some of his original plantings which are still on the property. Our Heritage Garden honors his design and plant selections.
Construction Days: Tuesday & Thursday mornings – 10am – 12 pm
PRIVATE GROUP TOURS
Please contact our office to arrange a Private Group Tour. 530-477-7126. We will do our best to arrange a tour for your group at a date/time that is consistent with current county Covid requirements.
The tour lasts approximately 45 minutes, with time for some Q&A afterwards. History Docents will show you the Heritage Garden and some of the grounds (weather permitting), then take you through the main floor of the House. You will learn about the history of the house, important people associated with the house, and what we are doing to restore the house and grounds.
