Sonora: Old Sonora Ice House Ranch Museum

Stories of outlaws and lawmen come alive at the Old Sonora Ice House Ranch Museum, the museum's hallmark exhibit is dedicated to the legacy of Will Carver, a member of Butch Cassidy's famous Wild Bunch gang, who found himself on the losing end of a shootout on the streets of Sonora in 1901. Housed in a 1920s ice house, the museum also chronicles the area’s ranching and pioneer heritage including the varied use of wool and mohair.
