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.

A nice short visit near Chico State University. If you've never been in Chico, it is ok to see at least once for a bit of Chico's history.
