Visitors and locals alike enjoy the self-guided walking tour that visits 26 historic structures throughout the small and welcoming town.

The cost of the book is $10, with all proceeds benefitting the Education Program at the Museum. You can start with a docent-led tour of the Museum prior to embarking on your exploration of the historic East Village.
The Cambria Historical Museum is located in the former Guthrie-Bianchini house, which was built in 1870. The building was designated in the National Register of Historical Places in 1980 and opened in 2008 as the Museum, after significant restoration. In addition to educating Cambria area residents and visitors about the history of the various people who have lived in the area, it provides a gathering place for small social functions and serves as a park in the beautiful Heirloom Garden. The Museum property hosts speaker events, festivals, and serves as the hub for information in the East Village. The Museum store provides visitors with books by local authors from pioneer families, paintings, old-fashioned children's toys and books, and more.
