Fodor's Review

Located in a stately brick building that once housed the community's swimming pool, Baker's history center has one of the most impressive rock collections in the West. Assembled over a lifetime by a local amateur geologist, the Cavin-Warfel Collection includes thunder eggs, glowing phosphorescent rocks, and a 950-pound hunk of quartz. Other exhibits highlight pioneering, ranching, mining, and antique furniture.

The museum also operates the nearby Adler House Museum,

an 1889 Italianate house that was once home to an eccentric publishing magnate and philanthropist. 2305 Main St., 97814. $6. Memorial Day–Labor Day.
