The Paradise area has a reputation of being a rich playground for recreational activity.

That just happens to be the subject of the Gold Nugget Museum's latest exhibit titled, "Outdoor Life on the Ridge - Then and Now."

The museum is showcasing how over the decades the Ridge has become a haven for campers, hunters, hikers, and fisherman and boaters who can enjoy Paradise Lake.

Chris Main, owner of the local hunting and fishing store called Fins, Fur and Feather Sports, was impressed. "I was looking at a bow and arrow there from the old, old days... 1800's and so on. They're not made that way anymore... just kind of neat to see the changes in the exhibits on that," Chris said.

The exhibit runs through February 25th. The museum is inviting the community to come out for a night at the museum on January 17th.

The Gold Nugget museum's regular hours are Wednesday through Sunday from noon to 4 pm.
