Tule River Historical Museum

The Tule River Historical Museum houses the first residence to be built in Springville, the Murphy House, along with early farming, mining, and logging equipment, photographs, diaries, and early recordings.  The Murphy House was disassembled and stored for years until a site was created for the Museum.  Then it was reassembled on the Museum Grounds and furnished with authentic old-time furnishings, including linens and dishes.

The Museum is located just south of Springville and is entered through the Rodeo Grounds.

The first Sunday in December, the Tule River Historical Society holds an open house where visitors are treated to old time craft demonstrations like weaving, forging, dutch oven cooking and guided tours of the Museum.
