The following photographs in this section were taken on the grounds and basement of of the Raymond Museum, which is located in the old Charles Miller house in Raymond, California (established in 1886). Charles Miller was the first railroad station master and stagecoach agent in Raymond. The house was restored and is operated by Lynn and Wayne Northrop.

Lynn kindly showed us throughout the museum and its grounds. If you visit, you will find many treasures relating to the local history of Raymond, Knowles, and the surrounding area, including information and photographs about the many historical local granite quarries covered by items in this museum. (The photographs below of were taken in September 2010 by Peggy B. Perazzo.) Amongst the photographs below, you will see photographs of the old vertical stone saw located near the museum. Lynn would love to hear from you if you have any information on this old stone saw.

You can learn more about the Raymond Museum and Charles Miller in the article “Raymond Museum now a historical place of interest,” by Elizabeth Gabriel on Sierra Star online, May 30, 2008.
