Originally constructed as the Magnolia Saloon in the 1860's, the building was partially damaged by a fire that destroyed the community's businesses in August 1899. Located on the town square, the saloon was rebuilt in 1900 allowing it to continue service at the heart of the community until the 1930's.
Henrietta Penrod later purchased the decaying structure intending to restore the saloon. Through her efforts and those of other civic-mined residents the building was renovated. Penrod sold the Magnolia to the City of Placerville for the sum of $1 and a promise to establish it as a museum.
The museum now contains artifacts, pictures and records recalling life in one of Southern Idaho's most important communities. In September 1894 (sic), the Henrietta Penrod Museum was selected as a Contributory Property and placed on the National Register of Historic Places.
