Coleman National Fish Hatchery  24411 Coleman Fish Hatchery Rd., in Anderson, 16 mi. E of I-5.

     A Salmon Festival occurs here each October. 

Kelly-Griggs House Museum  By donation.  Located just off the freeway, this restored 1880s Victorian features era furnishings and local Native American artifacts.  While here, pick up a self-guiding map to local Victorian homes. 

William B. Ide Adobe State Historic Park  21659 Adobe Rd.  Fee.  Located on the outskirts of town beside the Sacramento River, this authentically furnished one-room adobe was the home of early California settler William B. Ide--the Republic of California’s first and only president. Other buildings in the 3-acre park are an adobe smokehouse, a carriage shed for old buggies, and a small corral. This is a great spot for a picnic.
