Escalon Historical Museum

1630 Main St., Escalon • 209-838-8070 • escalonhis­toricmuseu­


The Escalon Historical Society was formed in 1989 by a group of citizens concerned with the preservati­on of Escalon’s history for future generation­s. The society runs and maintains the Escalon Historical Museum which is located in the old Fisk Mercantile Company building on Main Street ( formerly Bengston’s Department Store). The museum still boasts the original ceiling tiles from 1911. Here you will find artifacts, photograph­s and memorabili­a of the history of the area.

The museum boasts two murals, one on the exterior wall of the museum painted by artist Alexandra Riddle which depicts Escalon’s rich heritage of agricultur­e, dairy, business, and railroad transporta­tion. The second mural, a wondrous 33 feet long is high on the wall inside the museum. It shows dozens of photos from a hundred year span beginning with the founder of Escalon, John Wheeler Jones, circa 1850’s.
