Those wishing to learn more about the history of Davis and surrounding areas can visit the Hattie Weber Museum in downtown Davis. Named for Hattie (Harriet Elisha) Weber, who was the first paid librarian in Davisville, the museum is operated by the Yolo County Historical Society and run by knowledgeable volunteers.
The museum houses permanent exhibits on the Davis family, the railroad and UC Davis as well as rotating exhibits that have included Davis industries, antique family Bibles, Martin Luther King and more. Children are welcomed with treats and games at Halloween, goodie bags at Christmas and eggs at Easter. Admission is free but donations are accepted with gratitude.
