The exhibit space at the California Historical Society is dedicated to collecting, conserving and displaying the history of California in all its iterations. In their vaults, the organization protects over half a million photographs, 5,000 works of art and over 50,000 manuscripts, books and magazines. Rotating displays feature both well-known and hidden chapters of California’s past such as San Francisco’s 1915 Panama-Pacific International Exposition (World’s Fair) and the craft of largely-forgotten artists and tastemakers. After your visit, delve deeper into the collections on the California Historical Society’s impressively curated website.
