California Highway Patrol Museum

In 1929, the California legislature passed a law that created the California Highway Patrol (CHP), and it tasked them with enforcing traffic laws on the county and state highways. The CHP still had this mandate, though their responsibilities have expanded since the organization’s creation. To preserve the CHP’s storied past, they founded the California Highway Patrol Museum. The museum displays CHP artifacts to educate groups on the CHP’s history.
