William Byas Gibson was typical of ranchers and farmers in the early agricultural history of Yolo County. The house and grounds are maintained for educational and recreational purposes. The museum represents a typical rural home and ranch setting of the period from the mid-nineteenth to the early twentieth centuries.

The museum is located on two-and-a-half landscaped acres. The buildings include the main house with eleven rooms; outbuildings with root cellar and dairy display; a laundry display; garden maintenance and supplies; a garage used for storage; a barn with antique wagon; a blacksmith shop; and cottage. Please check the Calendar to see if Museum is open on the day you plan to visit.

The Gibson House is unique because it is the only historic home in Yolo County open to the public. The main themes of the museum are the establishment and development of farming and ranching in Yolo County, as shown through the life and work of William Byas Gibson and his family. The Gibson House is listed in the National Register of Historic Places.
