Cloudcroft’s Hidden Treasure

by Dan Tisdale
The Sacramento Historical Museum and Pioneer Village is just that. An entire village from the turn of the 20th Century. This is one first class facility. A tremendous amount of work as well as substantial unselfish donations from numerous people have come together in an old fashioned Pioneer Village.

Many people even in Cloudcroft have never been to the museum, which is a shame. We all need to go through the museum so we can tell our visitors about it. This is really something to be proud of. It’s neat to see what it was like over 100 years ago.

When people ask, “What is there to do in Cloudcroft”, the answer should always include going to see the museum. The museum is on approximately 3 acres and consists of the main building which includes a gift shop / General Store, a building for the 1960 fire truck, a train engine on tracks, a train station (under construction), the Edie house, a grainery, a working blacksmith shop, a building for fire fighting equipment, the Posey house, a double seater out house, an old school house (under construction), a chapel, the Weurshing house (two story with a tremendous amount of exhibits).

The museum is on limited hours due to lack of attendance through the winter but will soon be open every day. So I have three questions for you.

  • Do you want to support your town?
  • Have you ever been to the museum?
  • When are you going?

Admission is only $5.00 for adults and $3.00 for children 12 and under. Donations are always welcome.
