Tiger can be found at the junctions of Highways 20/31, four miles south of Ione. At this junction is the Tiger Historical Center and Museum, the only remaining building of the once thriving community of Tiger. The store was built in 1912 and served as a general store and Tiger’s post office until 1975.
The store was lovingly restored in 1999 and now serves as a visitor information center, gift shop featuring work by local artists & craftsmen, a refreshment stop for drinks, sundries and snacks, and rest stop, recreated forge and a picnic area.
The store also houses a museum with artifacts and historical photographs of the early days of Tiger and the Byway area. The store is open from Memorial Day through September, Thursday through Monday, 10 am – 5 pm. A large kiosk on the site has maps and information on the Byway area, available all hours.
