Soledad Museum update
The current issue of the Soledad Historical Society is in the mail to Society members with a timely update on the Society’s project, the Soledad Museum. With a $10 membership, the newsletter is an easy way to follow museum changes.
Right now while the museum is closed, the directors have been setting up the first in a series of shows relating to Soledad’s centennial year.
When public buildings reopen, the museum will feature artifacts and photos of the Native American rancho era. A later exhibit will date back to 1921, the year the city was incorporated. They will feature the broad scope and growth of the area and valley.
Meanwhile, although the doors are closed, the directors are always open-minded regarding additions, such as Mary Beth Orser’s material she used when she co-authored “It Happened in Soledad,” or an 1898 Singer foot treadle sewing machine, or family photos that tell the area story.
It all adds up to a place for valley history. Call Graig Stephens if you can contribute or help.
