Description

Inspired by the British Museum’s highly successful exhibit, “A History of the World in 100 Objects," curators at the Riverside Metropolitan Museum have carefully selected a wide assortment of 50 objects to represent Riverside’s past. Alone, each object may not tell a story, but together they create a context which reveals the history of Riverside along the way. Mammoth molars, stage coach foot warmers, comal cooking stones, chinese medicine bottles, photographs, and more will reveal the rich history of Riverside from pre-history to 1930. Highlights from Riverside's history also include: Spring Rancheria, Chinatown, John W. North, early transportation, the citrus boom, Harada family, water, recreation, fire department, and more!
