Loyalton's Milton Gottardi Museum

Preserving the history of the Sierra Valley

Main Street

When strolling through Downtown Loyalton in the early 1900’s, you would have seeen several hotels, including the Golden West (still in operation today) as well as a tailor shop, laundry, dentist, photo shop, churches, banks, and creamery. Besides memorabilia from early businesses, the “Main Street” room highlights an extensive merchantile and pharmacy as well as numerous items from the town’s early Masons, Native Daughters of the Golden West, Oddfellows and Rebekah groups.
