Guests can travel back to western days gone-by at the Guy B. Woodward Museum in downtown Ramona. Housed in the 1886 adobe Verlaque House, the museum exhibits historic treasures of early Western culture, including antique furnishings, vintage clothing, cowboy artifacts and mining equipment. Resembling a small Old West town, the surroundings buildings include a cowboy bunk house, blacksmith shop, tack room, one-room school, post office, and millinery shop. The museum also contains the Casey Tibbs Memorial Exhibit, Bancroft Memorial Rose Garden and Dr. James Robert Moriarity III Archaeological Archives. A large collection of pioneer wagons and tools, a medicine wagon and an early day Ramona firetruck are also on display.
