Nut Tree Centennial
100 Years of Fun, Food and Family

Through January 9, 2022

In July of 1921, the Power family started a roadside fruit stand that would become California’s favorite road stop and put Solano County on the map for travelers all over the country. The Vacaville Museum exhibit honoring the 100th anniversary of the original Nut Tree – Nut Tree Centennial: 100 Years of Food, Family and Fun – is now open. 

   The exhibit is possible thanks to the Museum’s generous presenting sponsor, Vacaville Commons. Please visit their website at vacavillecommons.com for daily deals and more information.

   The Vacaville Museum’s Nut Tree Centennial exhibit tells the story of the Nut Tree and the local family who, through a commitment to quality and innovation, created a world renowned “oasis of good taste” that was fit to serve the Queen, and did. The exhibit features all things original Nut Tree, including displays of the restaurant, retail shops and the Post Office. The colorful art of Nut Tree graphic artists, led by Don Birrell, are displayed throughout the exhibit. 

    The Museum exhibit gallery is open Thursday to Saturday, from 1:00 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. For guest safety, masks are required.  For more information about the Vacaville Museum and the Nut Tree Centennial exhibit, please call the Museum at (707) 447-4513.
