Ely Stage Stop to close for Easter holiday weekend

The Ely Stage Stop & Country Museum, operated by the Lake County Historical Society, will be closed Saturday and Sunday, March 26 and 27, in observance of the Easter weekend. The museum will reopen Saturday, April 2.

Due to the closure, the March Living History Day, usually held the fourth Saturday of each month, will be canceled. Watch for its return on April 23.

The museum is located at 9921 Soda Bay Road (Hwy 281) in Kelseyville (near Clearlake Riviera). Normal hours of operation are 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. each Saturday and Sunday. Fiddlers’ Jams occur the first Sunday of every month from noon until 2:00 p.m. Living History events featuring local historians are held on the fourth Saturday of every month, again, from noon to 2:00 p.m.
