If you'd like to learn something about the Chico area you need to visit Bidwell Mansion. This is a beautifully maintained piece of property and has a historical carriage house on site. Your guides will be wearing period costumes while they give you your tour. I've visited several times over the years, and learn something new each time. Don't miss out!

The tour explains the history of Chico as well as the Bidwells and their mansion. Some of the books, art and furniture are original to the home and the rest they have done of very nice job of collecting.

This is an amazing mansion. Historic land mark for California. The first home with indoor plumbing in California. Sorry for the lack of photos

The park ranger gave a very informative tour. Worth the small price of admission. Don't forget to check out the gift shop.

This California State Park offers guided tours of the historical Bidwell Mansion an architectural gem in the heart of Chico. The tour offers a glimpse into what life here was like in the last half of the 1800s as well as a bit of the family's history.
