“Courthouse Museum - Lakeport”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2012

This museum retains most of its history. An actual courtroom and a small theatre are just as they were in 19th century.

“Great local museum”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2012

Small, historic museum in downtown Lakeport. It was the courthouse at one time. Native American artifacts and tule boat, old pictures of the lake and inhabitants, friendly and knowledgeable docents. I recommend giving this place a visit.

“A slice of history”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2012

In downtown Lakeport on Main street you will find the old court house of Lake county. It is now a museum and genealogical research center. It gives you a good idea of the very interesting history of Lake County. It is also used as a meeting place where from time to time they have interesting cultural events. Check there calendar. The setting is also nice. Behind it is the new Court house and a block away it the the and Library park. If you are there in the summer at the park they have a free concert every Friday.
