One of the highlights of the Bidwell Mansion is the pictures of what the room looked like in the 1800's and the recreation of that picture in the room. It really brought the history of the mansion to life.

Get a glimpse into California's past and go on a guided tour through a mansion of great historic significance. Guides give information on the happenings of the time period as well as information on the mansion and occupants.
