“see original press equipment & tools from early mining days”

Part of the charm of the Eureka Sentinel Museum is its setting. Situated in the same building that housed the Eureka Sentinel newspaper from 1879 until 1960, the museum's first floor features a complete pressroom from the late 1800s. The pressroom walls are plastered with posters that were printed by the newspaper all those years ago and all of the press equipment is original. It's a fascinating glimpse into Eureka's booming heyday, the result of lead and silver strikes in the 1860s. Another interesting display at the Eureka Sentinel Museum covers this rich mining history. The exhibit features a variety of tools from early mining days and historic documents that include stock certificates, ledgers and personal items from bygone miners.

Housed in an old newspaper office, this cool little historical museum features exhibits on the printing press, old-school mining, and everyday life in the little town of Eureka back when it was a bustling boomtown.
