The DeWitt History Museum

Inside the new museum, photographs and artifacts help tell the stories of the different uses of the property during different eras. Exhibits highlight its purchase by the federal government as a WWII hospital, its subsequent purchase by the State Department of Mental Hygiene as a state hospital, and it’s most current function as The Placer County Government Center.
