Detail for Wells Fargo History Museum : Museum
Located next to the Wells Fargo Bank, this charming little museum offers visitors a glimpse into the life of a frontiersman in mid 1800s. Spurred by the California Gold Rush, Wells Fargo provided a way for pioneers to keep in touch with family and friends thousands of miles away by running a stagecoach as well as setting up outposts where individuals could exchange gold dust and nuggets, conduct banking transactions, and send and receive mail and packages. See the tools of the trade, as well as a refurbished stagecoach, from this exciting chapter of US history. - sys, 09/25/2002
