Current exhibit

Nut Tree Centennial
100 Years of Fun, Food and Family

Through January 9, 2022

In July 1921 Helen and Bunny Power opened a roadside fruit stand they named Nut Tree. That fruit stand grew into a Solano County landmark that entertained presidents and queens and delighted kids everywhere. The Vacaville Museum is marking the 100th anniversary of Vacaville’s beloved original Nut Tree with a special exhibit and events. The exhibit opens as soon as health restrictions allow and will run through January 9, 2022.  Events are planned throughout the year, from Nut Tree employee day to a pumpkin patch. Join the Vacaville Museum as we celebrate 100 years of the food, family and fun of the original Nut Tree.
