Telling Riverside’s Story in 50 Objects (Pre-history to 1930) PART 1
Inspired by the highly successful "A History of the World in 100 Objects" exhibit at the British Museum, curators at the Riverside Metropolitan Museum have carefully selected a wide assortment of 50 objects to represent Riverside's past. Starting with a mammoth tusk and jaw, they create a context that reveals the history of Riverside along the way. From there, everyone is included, from pre-contact Luiseño litchis and items from the Cahuilla village of Spring Rancheria to stage coach foot warmers, comal cooking stones, Chinese medicine bottles, photographs and more. They all help reveal the rich history of Riverside from pre-history to 1930. Highlights from Riverside's history also include Chinatown, John W. North, early transportation, the citrus boom, the Harada family, water, recreation, the fire department and more!
