Pope Valley Store

Pope Valley Store

Saturday, April 16

This store was the center of activities for the residents of Pope Valley for nearly a century, and served as a stopover for people traveling to Lake County. It was built about 1875 and housed a post office, saloon, hotel, and mercantile store. One of the adjacent buildings served as a garage that became one of the first AAA stations in the state.

This is part of an all-day event that runs from 11am to 4pm. There are no scheduled tour times. Picnic lunches are available for an additional price, or you may bring your own lunch. Guests can picnic at any of the participating Pope Valley sites.
