Barber Jon's Room of Curiosities & Oddities

10 minutes from Folsom Prison, Barber Jon's friendly, laid-back staff cuts hair... and loves to show off his Room of Curiosities and Oddities! The life-size Yoda, vampire bat, pickled parts, gator claw back-scratcher and bed of nails are among the things that will entertain you. Jon himself is fun, gracious and a wonderful host, who was tickled that this Florida tourist paid a visit.

Have your photo taken in his barber's chair and enjoy the hospitality and ambience. Super roadside stop east of Sacramento!
