Gold Nugget Museum, Pearson Road, Paradise<br />
One of the great tragedies of the fire was the loss of the Gold Nugget Museum on Pearson Road in Paradise. Although a few charred and rusted items were salvaged, virtually all of the ephemera were incinerated. Also destroyed were almost all of the artifacts relating to local icon “Yellowstone Kelly” and his family. Volunteers and students from the Chico State Anthropology Department did their best to rescue and inventory what they could.
