Fundraising Appeal by the Colton Area Museum and Historical Society. We are a 501 (C)(3) non-profit local museum housed in the 1908 Carnegie Library in the City of Colton, California. In 1984, under the leadership of Hazel Olson, the Colton Area Museum Association was formed. In December 1991 the building was officially opened as the Colton Area Museum.
